Notes:

  • Auto bid holders in this section are noted by the conference names in parentheses.
  • New entrants are marked with an asterisk.
  • Arrows indicate movement up or down the seed list (down to the spot on the seed list).
  • For at-large candidates only, the numbers in parentheses after the team’s name are as follows: NET, record vs. D1 opposition, record in Quad 1 and Quad 2 games, record in Quad 1 games only.

Auto Bid Selection Procedures

Until we get to the latter stages of the season, when conference races are a bit clearer and tournament No. 1 seeds are established, the following rules apply to auto bid selections.

First, account for conference record. The team with the best conference winning percentage will hold the auto bid. If multiple teams have the same winning percentage, but have played a different number of games, the team with more conference wins gets the bid.

If two or more teams are tied, their records in head-to-head competition serve as the first tiebreaker. If still deadlocked, if one team has a higher number of conference, it earns the bid.

If teams are still tied, overall winning percentage against all Division I opposition, with the team with the higher number of D1 wins earning the bid.

And if that fails, the team with the higher NET ranking takes the bid.
