67 Teams Eliminated, 284 Left for 68 Bracket Spots

The Conference Basketball championships are in fact the opening rounds of March Madness for teams that do not have a chance for an at-large bid to the tournament – and the following is the conference breakdown of 284 teams that still have a chance after 67 teams were eliminated.

Up to another 37 teams could be eliminated in Saturday action. This table lists the team and conference, then their next tournament action, so teams with a 3/4 final, semifinal, quarterfinal for first game (today) could be eliminated unless they show an “At-Large if no auto” number.

The 24 teams in bold are already locks to make the tournament, so teams are really fighting for 44 spots – some to be claimed by conference champions and other by the selection committee.  For more notes on the table see this post, or to see the top players for any of these teams go to www.valueaddbasketball.org.

The teams who most improved their chances in local days are:

Jacksonville State, who stunned Belmont in the Ohio Valley semifinals and has increased their chances of winning from 6% to 57% – needing only a win Saturday over Tennessee Martin, who they beat by 18 on the road this year. Their top player at www.valueaddbasketball is Erik Durham (No.15) at 369th.

Utah increased their chances a longshot at-large or Pac-12 conference title by upsetting Colorado on the road and then beating Cal by 30 points.

Yale blew out Cornell to guarantee a spot in the 4-team Ivy League tournament – the first time the League will award their auto bid through a tournament rather than the regular season champ.

Campbell, which stunned Big South favorite UNC-Ashville in the quarterfinals Thursday, and needs one more huge upset Saturday over Winthrop to claim the title and go to March Madness. Ashville had two Value Add top 100 players, while Campbell’s top player is 911th-thanks Chris Clemons (No.3).

Youngstown stayed alive with an open round upset of Cleveland State to advance in the Horizon League, but they would still need three more upsets – starting with a heavily favored Oakland team Saturday.
