The B1G is up to a season-high 8 bids, but 2 of those are among the "last 4 in". Gophers are still in solid shape, but that will change with a pair of losses this week. Need to get a win out of Ohio State/Maryland to remain rock steady.

KenPom/RPI average is noted in parentheses. An * denotes conference leader or team with best KenPom/RPI in a multiple-bid conference.
