The 14th Roman College Basketball Invitational returns to the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach featuring a new format. Prior to 2021, the CBI consisted of a 16-team field with games played on campus sites. Once the tournament was down to two teams, a best-of-three series was played, moving between the two home campuses, to determine the champion. The 2020 CBI was canceled due to the pandemic but returned in 2021 with eight teams playing a single-elimination tournament in Daytona Beach, with was won by Pepperdine with an 84-61 decision over Coastal Carolina. This year, the CBI is back at the Ocean Center, the field returns to 16 teams, seeded 1-16 for the first time, and it will retain the single-elimination format introduced last year.


ESPN2 and Flo Hoops will be the broadcast home for the Roman CBI. Flo Sports will broadcast the first three days of the tournament and ESPN2 will air the Semifinals and Championship game.

Past CBI champions include Tulsa, Oregon State, VCU, Oregon, Pittsburgh, Santa Clara, Siena, Loyola Chicago, Nevada, Wyoming, North Texas, South Florida, and Pepperdine. Teams from nearly every conference have participated in the event. Thirty-one teams have used the CBI to springboard to the NCAA Tournament the following year, while another 20 have gone on to the NIT.
