NCAA At large:

• 68 Teams – 32 conferences make the NCAAs – 36 at large bids
• 10 conferences (including the Ivies) are represented in the top 38 spots.
• So 28 at large bids used – leaving 8
• Bubble is around a 46 NET
• Some teams with a 50ish NET will make the cut – leaving out some low 40s NET, even a mid 30 NET is at risk.

• Columbia not likely to receive an at large – starting with a 56 NET, not likely to reach top 40 NET with a loss in the Ivy Tournament

• Princeton at a 31 NET could fall 10 with a loss at home to Penn or as the 1 seed – so would be close to the bubble, but given recent NCAA history I believe a 42ish or lower NET and the Tigers are an at large bid


The rules are clearer: https://www.ncaa.com/_flysystem/public-s3/ files/20...

• 32 Teams – best available – there is no stated 0.500 or better requirement
• Between NCAA & WBIT 100 teams make postseason
• 23 conferences represented in the NCAAs – so 9 NCAA spots going to conference outside the top 100
• WNIT Bubble is 91

• Columbia & Princeton would make the WBIT
• Harvard is on the WBIT bubble

• Perhaps rhetorically, would the WBIT take a 73 NET Purdue at 12-16 or a 84 Missouri at 11-17 … there are a number of Power 5 teams with losing records all around Harvard …


The rules are clearer: https://womensnit.com/sports/2019/2/10/Post _021019...

• 48 Teams

• 32 conferences represented - Highest finishing team in not in NCAA or NIT
• 16 at large need to have 0.500 record or better or 13 D1 Wins and a NET of 120 or better.

• So Harvard (if not in WBIT), else Penn

• The Bubble looks around a 130 NET – some teams will opt out of paying for the WNIT, so could be closer to 140 NET


• 8 Teams

With Harvard's win over Dartmouth tonight, the Crimson will be the 3rd seed in Ivy Madness and Penn will be the 4th seed.

For Columbia to be the #1 seed, this Saturday, the Lions will have to beat Cornell and Penn will have to win at Princeton.
