EDIT: Bolded teams did NOT win their conference tournament. Green Bay is the only bolded one that could potentially still make the NCAA tournament despite not winning their conference tournament.
Figured I'd keep a tracker for you guys about the regular season conference champions that could end up in the NIT if they don't win their conference. In addition, I have included the Championship dates so everyone knows when to expect to see the results.
Also, I want to note that Wagner is the #2 seed in the NEC and very well could win their conference. I remember many people were hating that we were opening the season against them.
