Ready To Dance? Saturday Bracketeering

  • Print

The first three conference tournament automatic bids go out today as the Big South, Ohio Valley and Atlantic Sun conferences hold their tourney finals.  Cornell earned the first automatic bid in the Ivy League by clinching the regular season title last night (the Ivy League does not hold a conference tournament.)


There are a few changes from last week's first look at Bracketeering.  As of Saturday afternoon (and believe me, this time of year it can change by the minute) there are 31 locks coming from 11 different conferences.  That means there should be between three and fourteen at-large bids up for grabs.


Automatic Bids: Cornell

Locks: Richmond, Temple, Xavier, Clemson, Duke, Maryland, Baylor, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Texas, Texas A&M, Georgetown, Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Villanova, West Virginia, Michigan State, Ohio State, Purdue, Wisconsin, Butler, Northern Iowa, BYU, New Mexico, California, Kentucky, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Gonzaga

Probables: Florida State, Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Louisville, Marquette, UAB, UTEP

Bubble Teams: Rhode Island, Notre Dame, Illinois, Memphis, San Diego State, Florida, St. Mary's, Utah State

Outside Looking In: Charlotte, Dayton, Connecticut, Seton Hall, South Florida, Minnesota, Old Dominion, Marshall, Tulsa, Siena, Kent State, Wichita State, UNLV, Arizona State, Washington, Mississippi State, Ole Miss
