Got to be honest, I really can't make a compelling case for any of the final four at-large teams. I can only say they are a tad better than the first four teams I left out of the field. And I should add that Virginia Tech is on dangerous ground. The Hokies don't have a top 50 win as of today. They have two sub-100 RPI losses. If they don't beat Duke, I think they have to beat Clemson or Boston College and one game in the ACC tournament. That projection may change, but that's how I see it today.

Multi-bid leagues
Big East (11 teams)
Big Ten (6)
SEC (6)
Big 12 (6)
ACC (5)
MWC (4)
Atlantic 10 (3)
CAA (2)

Last four in
Virginia Tech
Baylor
Michigan State
Southern Mississippi

First four out

Virginia Commonwealth
Butler
Alabama-Birmingham
Oklahoma State
