Conference Tourneys (2009)

with 12 comments

Besides the UMAC in the Central Region, winners of these tournaments will be awarded Pool A Bids (40 total) to the NCAA tournament. The UMAC is still a Pool B conference in 2009.
I listed multiregional conferences just once. For example, the UAA has teams from six of the eight regions, but it is listed only in the Central.
Not all conferences award Pool A bids to tournament champions.
