Gonzaga beat BYU to earn the West Coast Conference's automatic berth Tuesday, but both teams will still be playing -- and should be a headache for opponents -- when the NCAA tournament opens.
The conference season is young, but for a number of teams, league games have dramatically impacted their hopes for an NCAA tournament seed.
Tennessee, Kentucky and LSU are expected to dominate the SEC this season -- with all eyes on nearby Nashville and giving the league a Final Four team for the first time since 2008.
With new coaches and two new teams, change is the name of the game in the SEC. But reigning regular-season champ Kentucky is again considered the favorite.
Determining the No. 2 seeds will be the selection committee's toughest task next weekend. But this season, being a 3-seed has its advantages, like playing on a neutral site in the first and second round.
Ready for a game of what-if? Why not start thinking about a women's basketball version of BracketBusters -- and which teams would make the best matchups.
Baylor is the clear-cut overall No. 1 seed; Nebraska, Maryland and Ohio State are better than expected; Delaware is here to stay; and Gonzaga's placement in the bracket once again creates a dilemma.
From Sweet 16 newcomers to the top player left in the bracket, Charlie Creme takes a look at the round of 16.

Might this be the year for mid-majors to win more at-large bids than ever? Yes ... and no.
Who knew that four games in two days could impact Charlie Creme's latest bracket projection so much? And for winners like Oklahoma, North Carolina and Kansas State, that was very good news.
