The final automatic bids for the 2024 NCAA Tournament were distributed Sunday in the hours leading up to the Selection Show. With No. 1 seeds going down across the country in their conference tournaments, the Big Dance is going to include some surprise participants.

Among them is Duquesne, which won the A-10 Tournament as the No. 6 seed by edging No. 5 seed VCU 57-51 in Sunday's title game. The Dukes nearly squandered an 18-point lead but survived to reach their first NCAA Tournament since 1977.

Yale also joined the flood of tournament-bound teams on Sunday with a remarkable rally in the final 30 seconds to edge Brown 62-61 in the Ivy League final on a buzzer-beater from Matt Knowling. The Bulldogs trailed by six before the Bears missed three of their final four free throw attempts to leave the door open for Yale to make its second NCAA Tournament appearance of the last three years.
