Men's basketball committee chair Joe Castiglione had potentially good news for teams like Monmouth that generally have to win an automatic qualifying bid: "Typically we have between 9-11 conferences that send multiple teams to the tournament. This year I think you could make the case for about 14 leagues" if the top team fails to win the AQ. Perhaps Arkansas-Little Rock & Valparaiso fit that category too? We'll find out in just over a month.
Which small schools could upset giants?
Georgia State captured our hearts last season when it took down Baylor. This year, VCU, Chattanooga, Valparaiso and a few others could surprise in March. Top sleepers (Insider)

Impressive effort for Monmouth again. But let's see how many coaches pick up the phone for nonconference matchups next season and beyond. Success story but not necessarily for their budget. Same goes for UALR and others. Big wins are fun but not always helpful for schools that need buy games to back their annual budgets.
