Numerous conference championships have already been played out. Those teams with a ticket already punched to the NCAA tournament are: East Tennessee State (Atlantic Sun), Montana (Big Sky), Winthrop (Big South), Old Dominion (Colonial), Butler (Horizon), Cornell (Ivy League), Sienna (MAAC), Northern Iowa (Missouri Valley), Robert Morris (Northeast), Murray State (OVC), Lehigh (Patriot), Wofford (Southern), Oakland (Summit), North Texas (Sun Belt), Saint Mary's (West Coast).
