Final projection of the Field of 68

If you don’t like this time of year, then you don’t enjoy fun.

Four teams have already punched their ticket to the dance, now we have 64 spots remaining.

Liberty won the Atlantic Sun tournament to make their fourth appearance in the tournament in school history. Gardner-Webb won the Big South tournament for their first appearance in school history in the big dance. Bradley erased an 18-point deficit to win the Missouri Valley tournament to secure their auto bid. Murray State won the Ohio Valley tournament.

Who else will punch their ticket to the big dance this week in “auto bid week”?
