PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) The College Basketball Invitational will use a 30-second shot clock to assist the NCAA in research on pace of play and scoring.

''The additional data we will receive from these games will be very meaningful to us as we meet this coming May,'' Belmont coach Rick Byrd, the NCAA Men's Basketball Rules Committee chair, said Wednesday.

The 16-team postseason tournament opens with games March 17 and 18.
