NCAA Tournament Survival Board

Welcome to the 2018-2019 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.

For this season, we welcome the North Alabama Lions (Atlantic Sun) and last year’s Team of the People Cal Baptist Lancers (WAC) to the ranks of Division I basketball. This is their first of 4 seasons in which they are transitioning up to full D-I membership, and as such are only eligible for the CBI and CIT this year.  The only other ineligible teams are Alabama A&M and Florida A&M due to APR bans.

Over the next two years, three more teams will begin their own transitional process – Merrimack will join the Northeast Conference for 2019-2020 while UC-San Diego joins the Big West and Dixie State joins the WAC in 2020-21.

Four teams changed conferences in 2018-19: (also note that Fort Wayne/IPFW will now be rebranded as Purdue-Fort Wayne beginning this season)

  • Hampton moves from the MEAC to the Big South
  • USC-Upstate moves from the Atlantic Sun to the Big South
  • Liberty moves from the Big South to the Atlantic Sun
  • North Dakota moves from the Big Sky to the Summit League

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.

Auto-Bid Only (normal text): This team can only make the tournament via an automatic bid.
