At-large board: Feb. 27

← return to D1SCOURSE

As nice as a bracket might be, feedback over the last few years suggests a full rundown of the at-large field is a good thing, too.

First, the usual caveat: This only includes teams currently projected to be in the at-large field. Current conference leaders (like Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan State, Syracuse and more) are considered automatic qualifiers at the moment. So please, no e-mails or comments about why Wichita State or Murray State or Memphis (or any other conference leader) isn’t on here.

Why is this useful? Well, it provides a ballpark snapshot at roughly where teams are situated relative to each other. It’s not 100 percent accurate – it’s a projection, not an iron-clad preview – but it wasn’t pieced together on a whim.
