Concordia Invitational Tournament 2017

Concordia University, Nebraska will host the 66th annual Concordia Invitational Tournament (CIT) Jan. 27-28. The tournament features, in addition to the Bulldogs, the Concordias of Ann Arbor, Mich., Mequon, Wis., and River Forest, Ill., competing in both men's and women's basketball. CIT is one of the longest running tournaments in the country, and it is a highlight of the athletic year among the participating Concordias.

Bulldogs own 52 combined CIT titles

The Bulldogs have ruled CIT during the first 65 years of the event's history. The men's CIT dates back to 1951 with the women added to the tournament in 1973. During that time, Concordia-Nebraska leads the field with 26 men's CIT titles and 26 women's championships. Last season the Bulldog men and women both defeated Concordia-Wisconsin in their respective championship games. Chandler Folkerts and Quinn Wragge represented CUNE as tournament MVPs.
