Conference tournaments are under way in college basketball in advance of March Madness.
A total of 31 automatic bids will be awarded for the NCAA men’s basketball tournament in 2021 with the Ivy League on pause, the only conference that does not have a tournament. (Normally the field of 68 consists of 32 auto-qualifiers and 36 at-large bids). Plans could change given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in the United States. But as of now, it’s all systems go.
