2022 March Madness, conference tournament brackets, automatic bids: Colgate wins Patriot League title

USATSI

College basketball’s conference tournament season hit overdrive on Wednesday as the postseason began in several major leagues and continued on throughout the Division I ranks. With automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament on the line this week, stakes are high for teams across the country looking to stay in the hunt for the sport’s ultimate prize.

Just one conference, the Patriot League, crowned a tournament champion on Wednesday, though, and it went to a familiar program as Colgate clinched its third straight NCAA Tournament appearance. The No. 1 seed Raiders beat No. 2 seed Navy 74-58 for their 15th straight victory. Getting it done was not easy for Colgate, however, as Navy rallied from a 24-point deficit to be within 58-52 with 6:22 remaining. The Midshipmen were seeking their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1998.

Though only a projected No. 15 seed in the NCAA Tournament by CBS Sports Bracketology Expert Jerry Palm, Colgate will be a team that no one wants to face in the first round of the Big Dance. As a No. 14 seed last season, the Raiders trailed by just three at halftime before losing 85-68 to Arkansas in a first round game. In 2019, Colgate nearly upset Tennessee as a No. 15 seed before losing 77-70 to the Volunteers.

With Selection Sunday just a few days away, here’s the full rundown of all those who have secured their spots in the 2022 NCAA Tournament.
