IPFW's men's basketball players went to bed Wednesday night thinking about their upcoming trip to play at Ohio University in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament.

They woke up today to a different destination.

Around 1:30 a.m. today, the CIT changed the flexible tourney match-ups and IPFW will now play Virginia Military Institute at 1 p.m. Saturday in Lexington, Va.

IPFW (25-10) advanced with a 97-91 win over Akron in the first round on Wednesday at the Gates Center. VMI (20-12) beat Canisius 111-100 on Tuesday in its opening game.

The CIT does not have a bracket in place, but pairs teams that advance depending on factors such as geography and schools willing to host the games.
