These conferences include schools from the Midwest, West, East, and South regions who top the seeding process.
Just as you think that any team can qualify the March Madness, think again. Do know that the seeding process for the NCAA tournament is complicated as there are numerous guidelines set by the NCAA selection panels that each team needs to pass. Such guidelines include the overall team’s performance in the conference rounds, the players, the opponents, etc.
As the seeding progresses, the NCAA Board of Directors has successfully announced the top sixteen teams who caps the ranking today. The ranking and betting lines include the Kansas Jayhawks, which is another NCAA team that might offer a tough appearance during the 2020 March Madness.
