Which Teams Are March Madness Bound? Tracking Automatic Bids for Men’s, Women’s NCAA Tournaments

Fairleigh Dickinson earned the first men’s NCAA Tournament bid in unusual fashion on Saturday. The Knights defeated Saint Francis in the semifinals of the Northeast conference tournament. But since the other tournament finalist (Merrimack) is ineligible for March Madness due to the D-I transition rule, FDU was given the automatic bid.

Tennessee Tech, meanwhile, captured the Ohio Valley tournament title on Saturday to become the first team to lock down a spot in the women’s bracket.
