Wofford in a close one with ETSU right now, I'm hoping someone can upset them so The SoCon can get 2 bids

That didn’t help Murray State a few years ago or 25th ranked Colorado State. 👀

WOfford is getting in no matter what, they're being projected at the 7 line and no team left in the tourney is bad enough to knock them all the way out of the field.

 

Belmont and Lipscomb on the other hand are in trouble

No one is for sure. If Wofford loses in the conference tournament they will be doing what Belmont  is doing, watching the other tournaments to see how get laid out especially the ones where they are already getting multiple bids but then a darkhorse wins the tournament. 

Wofford only needs one more victory now but still saying. There are people still pushing Furman for the tournament as well out of Southern Conference. Read I think on CBS this morning if Furman can beat Greensboro tonight, it could be enough to have them in the tournament.

Furman shouldn’t be considered an at large imo... they are hanging their hat on Villanova win and that is it. They scheduled terribly in OOC.

We really don't know who is being considered as most of the brackets are just guesses pretty much. Once the committee gets in there, do what they do decide what they decide and then look for reasons to support the decisions after they are made we will find out. 

But NC State also scheduled horribly but hanging their hat on being in the ACC

#1 South Dakota State got dumped in the Summit League quarterfinals last night by #8 Western Illinois as well. 

The NIT bubble is being absolutely destroyed. Oh, the humanity.

#7 ranked Stanford took down #6 Oregon in the PAC-12 women’s title game, thus concluding all meaningful activity in that league’s postseason basketball tournaments this season.

Wofford gets hot late, and looks like they're going to kill the dream of a 2 bid SoCon.

On the other side, good for Pepperdine in hiring Lorenzo Romar.  They get Michael Cage Jr next season with two years of eligibility.  I view the WCC schools like family.

Wofford and Iona punch their tickets.

 

5 bids at stake tomorrow...

Omaha will try to punch their first ever ticket against North Dakota State. 

Hofstra will try to make their first dance in 18 years against Northeastern.

Northern Kentucky and Wright State split the regular season title and will play for The Horizon bid.

St. Francis (PA) will try to punch their first ticket in 28 years at home against Farliegh Dickinson. 

Gonzaga will murder The Washington Generals (aka San Diego or St. Mary's)

 

Also The ACC, MEAC, SWAC, and Sun Belt will play their first rounds tomorrow, and The America East will play it's semis.

MEAC started their tournament tonight with one game.

However for the teams punching tickets they were #1 seeds in their tournament and tomorrow 4 of the 5 championship games have the 1 seed and depending on who wins the St. Mary's games, those same four games are going to be 1 vs. 2 seeds which is pretty good.

@sebasour good summary for what is coming tomorrow and what is coming up.

There have been some very hard fought contests this year in the conferences tournaments. 

Also there is talk the game between Ohio St and Indiana on Wednesday could be an elimination game for NCAA Tournament.

All five are 1-bid conferences anyway... not a bid thief among the lot.
