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.

Those who don’t win their conference tournaments will have to hope they earn one of 36 at-large bids into the NCAA tournament. The selection committee will announce the full 68-team field on Selection Sunday, March 12.

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


Total Bids: 68

Automatic Bids Clinched: 32

Bids Remaining: 36
