- Albany, Long Beach State, Miami (Oh.), Florida A&M, Jackson State and New Mexico State, welcome to the dance. All won their respective conference tournament championships, and are all super-great.
- LBSU is the only double-champion from Saturday, following up a regular-season title with a tourney championship. Of three No. 1 versus No. 2 matchups, four were won by the No. 2 seed.
- And there was one: the Southland final wraps up Championship Fortnight.
- Autobids: Pennsylvania, Winthrop, Eastern Kentucky, Davidson, Creighton, Virginia Commonwealth, Niagara, Wright State, Oral Roberts, North Texas, Central Connecticut State, Weber State, Holy Cross, Albany, Long Beach State, Miami (Oh.), Florida A&M, Jackson State, New Mexico State.
- NIT: Austin Peay, Marist, East Tennessee State, South Alabama, Toledo, Vermont, Delaware State, Mississippi Valley State (and Southern Illinois). That's eight, which doesn't leave a lot of room in a 32-team field for mid-major "at-larges."

To lose, to sleep... to sleep, perchance to dream. Cal Poly, Akron and Utah State, your summer slumbers have just begun. These programs will have to hibernate eight long months in suspended animation before they can avenge their late losses on the court again: ay, there's the rub.
