Predicted 2009 CBI

Here's 16 teams who I think will be worthy of a CBI invite next spring.

Charleston: (Southern)
George Mason: (CAA)
Georgia Tech: (ACC)
Jacksonville: (Atlantic Sun)
Louisiana State: (SEC)
Louisiana Tech: (WAC)
Marshall: (C-USA)
Ohio: (MAC)
Penn State: (Big Ten)
Richmond: (Atlantic 10)
Rutgers: (Big East)
Southern Illinois: (MVC)
Stanford: (PAC 10)
Texas Tech:(Big XII)
Western Kentucky (Sun Belt)
Wisconsin-Green Bay: (Horizon)

Most likely to move up into this group would LaSalle of the Atlantic Ten.
Most likely to move up out of this group (to the NIT) would be Southern Illinois.

Additional thought:
I'm pretty shocked that some folks are picking Louisiana State for Top 25 success. Yeah, there's a lot of scorers returning, but between the chemistry and the defense, I see a lot of room for improvement for a team that only won 6 games last season in a not-that-tough SEC.
