Middle Tennessee?coach Kermit Davis and? Saint Mary's?coach Randy Bennett, whose mid-major teams were snubbed on Sunday, told ESPN that the new quadrant system makes it more difficult for mid-majors to make the NCAA tournament.
"The committee sent a message to me that it's going to get tougher for everybody at our level to get an at-large with this new system," Davis said. "You've got to be perfect. We only have a few chances, and they are usually either on the road or on a neutral court, where the Power 5 schools have six to eight opportunities at home in front of their crowd."
