The first round game will be played at Gill Coliseum on Tuesday, March 17, or Wednesday, March 18, with a time and opponent to be announced on Sunday evening.
The Beavers, who own three top 50 RPI wins this season, were picked to finish last in the Pac-10 Conference in the media poll.
enters postseason play with a record of 13-17 on the year after finishing Pac-10 Conference play in eighth-place with a 7-11 mark.
The postseason appearance will be the 21st in school history. The Beavers last earned a postseason bid with a berth in the National Invitation Tournament following the 2004-05 campaign.
The CBI will be played under a single-elimination format, up until the Championship Series which is best two of three.
Students will be admitted to the Beavs' first round game for free and can begin picking up tickets on Monday at 8:30 a.m. Tickets for the first round of the CBI will go on sale Monday, March 16 at 8:30 a.m. The price will be $25 for a chairback and $15 for a bench seat.
