The Gazelle Group, which created the tournament in the 2007-08 season, said the CBI would return in 2021.

The College Basketball Invitational selects 16 teams that are not picked for the NCAA tournament or NIT. https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/team/_/id/58 won the tournament last season in a best-of-three final over https://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketball/team/_/id/305/depaul-blue-demons.

This!

 

If people are looking at fan bases that are more likely to travel, those closest to the site, etc, they are going to miss a very big factor this tourney.

  It makes total sense if you understand how the elites who support global depopulation think. They believe the elders are worthless to them and are a burden on the economy and the systems that support it. But the virus doesn't just kill elderly it can kill anyone whose immune system is weak and vulnerable. No virus is smart enough to understand "age" and it always has to start somewhere. The elderly just made sense as a starting point because of how they think.
The boomers need to go in their thinking since the economy needs to support them for the rest of their lives, better steal more money right cool

This just on from the most respected men of our times!

An Important Message from Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D.

Coronavirus: Do Not Fear the Boogeyman

 
The world is currently gripped in fear of the scary coronavirus.  Let’s first get one fact clear: If you have ever had a cold or flu in your life, odds are that it was the result of a coronavirus infection. Yes, coronaviruses cause colds.
 
But, we are being programmed with the belief that this particular cold virus is “deadly.” This fear has shut down concerts, conferences, and major public events all over the world. The fear has led to quarantines and closing down of international travel. It has even led to a major scarcity of toilet paper in Australia, were concerned citizens emptied the shelves of this commodity in anticipation that they will be walled up in their homes with this infection.
 
First, how deadly is this version of the virus? Yes, there have been corona-related deaths reported with the statistics suggesting that ~2% of the infected population dies. Wow! That number is almost 1% more deaths than are attributed to conventional flu the world experiences.  What is misleading is the fear that everyone who carries this virus may die from their cold. This is simply untrue! The health of almost all the victims of this coronavirus was already compromised before they were infected.
 
For example, the following information was provided by the news in regard to the patients that died of the virus in the state of Washington last week (I added the bold print):

Washington State

Six people have died in Washington and health officials have identified 18 cases.

Four of the cases in King County were linked to the  in Kirkland. More than 50 residents and staff at the facility are being tested.

The deaths announced Monday, according to health officials, included:

-A male in his 70s, who lived at LifeCare.  and died Sunday.

-A female resident of LifeCare in her 70s. She also  and died Sunday.

-A woman in her 80s, who , died Sunday.

-A Snohomish County resident at EvergreenHealth also died but details of that patient have not been given.

Two previously reported deaths included a man in his 70s who  and had been a resident of LifeCare. He died at EvergreenHealth on Feb. 29. The other was a man in his 50s. He was admitted with serious respiratory issues and tested positive for the virus. He died at EvergreenHealth Medical Center in Kirkland.

continuation of above.....


As emphasized in this report, the health of all those that died with the coronavirus was compromised. Healthy people get cold and flu symptoms, while those already sick and near death’s door may experience the “Grim Reaper” when infected by the virus. True, sick people are more vulnerable to the virus; healthy people really have nothing to fear.
 
As presented in The Biology of Belief, stress is responsible for up to 90% of illness, including heart disease, cancer and diabetes. When an individual is in stress, the release of stress hormones (e.g., cortisol) shuts down the immune system to conserve the body’s energy for running away from the perceived stressor, that proverbial “saber-toothed tiger.” Stress hormones are so effective at compromising the immune system, that physicians therapeutically provide recipients of organ transplants with stress hormones to prevent their immune system from rejecting the foreign implant.
 
The conclusion is clear: The fear of the coronavirus is more deadly than the virus itself!
 
The media (perhaps in conjunction with the pharmaceutical industry) is compromising people’s health using the fear card! This is the result of negative thinking (the nocebo effect) which is the complete opposite of the placebo effect manifest through positive thinking! If you make efforts to stay healthy, with good nutrition, exercise, taking vitamins and supplements, and more importantly, avoiding stress (e.g., the “fear” of the virus), even if you do get infected with the virus, you will likely only end up with a cold and/or slight fever.
 
If you are someone with a compromised immune system, it is supportive to surround yourself with loving family and friends, nature, and positive thoughts as well as any other nutrition and vitamins that you may already be taking for your health and wellbeing. Following your intuition about what is best for you is key! The point here is that no matter who you are and what your state of health, you will only benefit from steering clear of the fear and supporting yourself in whatever way feels best to you. 
 
Please remember the truth of quantum physics, the most valid of all sciences on the planet: Consciousness is creating your life experiences! Are you being conscious of disease … or of health? Wishing you all Health, Happiness and Harmony.

There is nothing to net on except the Casino.  The Baccarrat Table. There is a 50/50 game. Just like sports and let the cards play. It's a guessing game for those who don't know. Either bet Player or Banker side. Who ever side you best closed to 9 points wins the bet. Just an idea for us gambler fans.
