Things to Know About the Selection Process

-       All ten conferences have automatic qualifiers this year.

-       18 teams will make the NCAAT.

-       There are two play-in games. The four conference champions with the lowest RPI rankings get placed into the play-in games.

-       Non-seeded teams (teams that do not get a #1-8 seed) are placed with geographic consideration. The Committee will do its best to limit the number of flights needed to play the first round games. A flight is required for travel over 400 miles.

-       The Committee tries its best to avoid first round, in-conference matchups.

-       An at-large bid cannot go to a team with a sub .500 record.

-       Navy and Denver are hosting, so if those two make it into the Tournament they will have home games.
