Wichita State, the West Region champion, will take on Louisville in Saturdays national semifinal.
Last year, Kansas, coming off its Final Four season, won the championship.
Wichita State played in the CBE in 2009, falling to Pittsburgh and defeating Iowa for third place. Texas won the tournament that year, and the Longhorns also won the CBE in 2005.
