NCAA dismisses ACC’s proposal to expand March Madness

After the ACC proposed that the 2021 NCAA tournament should include every single Division I team, the NCAA does not appear interested in shaking up the Big Dance.

Dan Gavitt, the NCAA senior vice president of men’s basketball, released a statement Thursday saying there are no current plans to expand the tournament field beyond 68 teams.

“Every college basketball team’s goal is to play in the NCAA tournament because everyone loves March Madness. Certainly, we missed it this year and can’t wait for 2021,” Gavitt said. “While all who care about the game are entitled to their opinion, and we’ll always listen respectfully, at this time we are not working on any contingency plan that involves expanding the tournament.”
