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.
