March 5-10, as they share venues with the women.  Norfolk is the host city.

1) Hampton vs. 8/9) Howard/Florida A&M
4/13) North Carolina A&T/Delaware St vs. 5/12) Norfolk St/UMES
3) Savannah St vs. 6/11) NC Central/Coppin St
2) Bethune-Cookman vs. 7/10) Morgan St/South Carolina St

The stakes:
Who cares.  CRPI 31.  SSU is the only team sub-200 in the RPI, and they're under .500 overall.  Winner of this tournament is going to Dayton, full stop.

Hampton has the NIT autobid.  Bethune-Cookman and NC A&T are CIT eligible.  For those who speculate.
