The madness of March is in full swing. Five automatic bids to the NCAA Tournament have already been handed out with five more scheduled to be awarded tonight.

Grabbing bids to the NCAA are Liberty, who won the Big South Conference title, Creighton, who claimed the Missouri Valley Conference, Harvard, who won the Ivy League championship, Florida Gulf Coast, who claimed the Atlantic Sun Conference and Belmont, who won the Ohio Valley Conference.

Taking center-stage tonight is top-ranked Gonzaga, which battles Saint Mary's for the West Coast Conference title in Las Vegas. The full 68-team field will be revealed Sunday.
