News And Notes…01/04/2018 5:04pm CT

We are now about 2 months away from conference tourneys. What are we seeing so far? There are a lot of power conference teams with great records. It does appear that the days where the mid-majors getting multiple bids are over. We only see the MWC at this point getting an at large bid. By looking at overall records it certainly looks like that’s not going to change.
At this point in the season the biggest factor to look at is conference RPI. Because the OOC schedule is now complete these RPI rankings will not change very much. The better the RPI ranking the better chance for that conference to get more multiple teams. The surprise conference has to be the SEC. They currently project to get 8 teams bids which is by far the most they have had. The B1G is in a down year. Yet because of the landscape they still project to get 6 teams bids.
