The University of Toledo men’s basketball season isn’t done yet.

Late Sunday, UT accepted a bid to compete in the 2017 College Basketball Invitational.

The Rockets (17-16) will travel to Washington to face Atlantic 10 opponent George Washington (19-14) in CBI first-round action on Wednesday at GW’s Charles E. Smith Center at 7 p.m.

The CBI is a single-elimination tournament up until the best-of-three finals, with all games played at campus sites.

After the first-round games, the quarterfinal round will take place on Monday, followed by the semifinal round on March 22. Before the semifinals, the remaining teams will be re-bracketed. The finals series is a best-of-three in which one team will host two of the three games. Those games will be played on March 27, March 29 and March 31.

The winner of the Toledo-George Washington game will play the winner of the Stony Brook-University of Illinois at Chicago.

Other teams include George Mason, Rice, Coastal Carolina, San Francisco, Green Bay, and Wyoming.
