Warhawks get postseason tournament bid

ULM Hawkeye

ULM may have lost out on a chance to go to the big dance, but they will be making a postseason appearance.

The Warhawks will host Eastern Michigan at Fant-Ewing Coliseum Wednesday at 7 p.m. in the College Basketball Invitational (CBI) tournament.

Georgia Southern bounced ULM out of the Sun Belt Tournament in the semifinals on Saturday. The Warhawks finished the year with a 21-12 record. Eastern Michigan fell to Toledo in the Mid American Conference Tournament. The Eagles hold a 21-13 record on the year.

The CBI is a tournament that selects 16 teams not chosen by the NCAA tournament or the NIT.

This is the first postseason birth for the Warhawks since 1996.
