Selection Sunday is just hours away, but there are still five more automatic bids to give out for the tournament. By this point, the Selection Committee has either finished or is very close to deciding the field of 68.
Looking at the slate of games today, the Sun Belt final is the only game with do-or-die tournament implications. Only the winner of that game will make it in. The other four involve teams that will likely make the tournament regardless of today’s games. The only other question mark is Saint Joseph’s, who are currently slated to get one of the last four byes, according to Joe Lunardi.
