Team Capsules

Team Capsules: Key wins and losses are important considerations in NCAA selection and seeding. Teams listed here are those we expect to be in the hunt for at-large NCAA consideration. As the season progresses, teams may be added or removed. Teams from traditional one-bid leagues may be included if they become realistic at-large candidates.

KEY: @=road win/loss | n=neutral court win/loss | team=home win/loss.
