NCAA Tournament Automatic Bids

College Basketball's annual NCAA Tournament is made up of a combination of automatic bids handed out to conference champions as well as at-large berths. While the at-large berths are widely dominated by big name schools from the biggest conferences, conferences like the Missouri Valley, WCC and MAC have seen their champions & members succeed in the big dance many times over the years.

Each of the 31 automatic bids is granted to the winner of the Championship Game for the NCAA Conference Tournaments for that specific conference. The lone automatic bid that goes to a regular season champion is the Ivy League while the other 30 conferences crown the winner of the Conference Tournament Championship Game.
