NCAA Tournament Survival Board

Welcome to the 2017-18 HOOPS HD NCAA Tournament Survival Board.  This is the list of teams that mathematically have a chance to make the NCAA tournament and thus (in theory) win the national championship.  It will be updated regularly as teams get eliminated.  The main reasons for eliminations are failing to qualify or losing in a conference tournament without a resume worthy of at-large bid consideration.

With the beginning of the 2017-18 athletic year, 4 programs have completed their transition to Division I and will be eligible for NCAA Tournament consideration this year – the UMass-Lowell River Hawks, the Abilene Christian Wildcats, the Incarnate Word Cardinals and the Grand Canyon Antelopes. Three programs are ineligible due to APR issues – Alabama A&M, Grambling and Southeast Missouri State.

LATEST UPDATE: April 2, 2018 11:59 PM Eastern

Congratulations to the Villanova Wildcats!!  2018 NCAA Men’s Basketball Champions!!  

LEGEND:

CHAMPION (BOLD AND ALL CAPS):  This team has clinched its conference’s automatic bid.

Locks (Bold): This team, despite not winning an automatic bid yet, is considered a lock for at least an at-large bid.  This means that even if the teams loses every game left on its schedule, it will still make the field.

Under Consideration (Italics): This team, despite not winning an automatic bid yet, is at least under consideration (on the bubble) for an at-large bid.  This means that if the team wins every game remaining on its schedule until the conference tournament final, it may get consideration for an at-large bid.

Lose and You’re Screwed (normal text): This team can only make the tournament via an automatic bid.
