Regular season[edit]

Conference winners and tournaments[edit]

29 conference seasons concluded with a single-elimination tournament, with only the Ivy League or the Pac-10 choosing not to conduct conference tournaments. Conference tournament winners generally received an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. The Mountain West Conference began operation in 1999-00 and their tournament winner did not receive an automatic bid (although UNLV, winners of the inaugural MWC tournament, did receive an at-large bid).
