March Madness 2014: Updated NCAA Tournament automatic bids


As the larger conference tournaments are about to get underway, that means the smaller conferences are crowning their tournament champions and a few more were added on Tuesday night.

Once again, the Gonzaga Bulldogs were crowned the West Coast Conference champions after they were able to hold off the BUY Cougars in the finals of their tournament. Head coach and his Bulldogs will not take another crack at making a run toward the national championship.

Here’s a current look at the updated list of automatic bids that have already been claimed as we get ready for the big boys to take center stage on Wednesday.


Things will get kicked off on Wednesday with the tournaments from all the major conferences, besides the Big Ten which doesn’t get off and running until Thursday.

However, some of those larger conference teams might be staring down a disappointing fate from one of the teams above that are now going to get ready to claim their moment when the NCAA Tournament gets going.
