The 2014 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament (CIT) was a postseason single-elimination tournament of 32 NCAA Division I teams. The first round started March 17, 2014. The semifinals were played on April 1, with the championship game played on April 3, 2014.

32 participants who belong to "mid-major" conferences and were not invited to the 2014 NCAA Tournament, the 2014 National Invitation Tournament (NIT), or the 2014 College Basketball Invitational (CBI) made up the field.

The first 3 rounds were streamed online through the Collegeinsider.com platform powered by NeuLion. Free registration was required to view the games. Both semifinals and the CIT championship game, were televised on CBS Sports Network[1]

In the championship game, the Murray State Racers defeated the Yale Bulldogs 65–57 in front of a crowd of 4,467 at Murray State's CFSB Center.[2]
