Today's at-large board

← return to D1SCOURSE

In? Out?

Obviously, no one will know until March 15.

But for now, here’s a little at-large board exercise to line things up.

First off, a list of teams that are being counted as automatic qualifiers (for now). Fluctuations in this group will affect whoever is on the at-large board going forward.

Those teams are North Carolina (ACC), Xavier (A-10), Kansas (Big 12), Connecticut (Big East), Michigan State (Big Ten), Memphis (Conference USA), Butler (Horizon), Siena (Metro Atlantic), Creighton (Missouri Valley), Utah (Mountain West), Washington (Pac-10), Louisiana State (Southeastern), Utah State (WAC) and Gonzaga (WCC)

Not all 14 of those teams are certain at-large possibilities. In fact, Siena and Utah State probably wouldn’t crack the top 40 on this list. Their inclusion is merely for thoroughness.
