It wasn't until around 2:30am EST that the College Basketball Invitational Tournament committee finally released its inaugural 16-team field. Virginia will host Richmond Tuesday night at John Paul Jones Arena. The game is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. and will be televised by Fox College Sports.
The news give both teams less than 48 hours to prepare for each other. The Cavaliers enter the game with an overall record of 15-15 after losing to Georgia Tech 94-76 in the opening round of the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament last Thursday.
The winner of the Virginia-Richmond game will play the winner of a first round game between Old Dominion and Rider on March 24 in the tournament quarterfinals.
