2019 WAC Tournament winner

This season is CBU's first of a four-year transition period from Division II to Division I. As a result, the Lancers were not eligible for NCAA postseason play and did not participate in the WAC Tournament. They were eligible to play in the CIT or CBI. The Lancers accepted an invitation to play in the College Basketball Invitational, where they were defeated in the first round by Loyola Marymount, ending their season.
