The NCAA men’s basketball tournament is fast approaching.
Ahead of the big dance, hundreds of teams will do battle in their conference tournaments as they vie for one of just 32 automatic bids.

In the meantime, we’ll keep track of the automatic bids below, as we monitor each conference tournament winner.
Total Bids: 68
