Towson (23-10), which lost in the Colonial Athletic Association semifinals March 9 at Baltimore Arena, accepted a bid for the CollegeInsider.com men's basketball tournament.

In their first postseason appearance since 1991, the Tigers will travel to play South Carolina Upstate (19-14) in a first-round game Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Hodge Center in Spartanburg, S.C.

The CIT, which features a 32-team field made up of non-BCS programs, is in its sixth year.

“We're extremely excited for the opportunity to play in the College Insider.com Postseason Tournament,” Towson coach Pat Skerry said in a statement Sunday night. “To keep our program moving forward, it's vital to play in the postseason. With our highest RPI ever [No. 96] and a school-record 23 wins, our kids deserved to keep playing.”
