The 2022 Tournament will expand to 68 teams to match the men. The first four games will be on 4 of the campus sites of the top 16 seeds for 2022 before moving to neutral site for 2023. To accommodate, the selection show/announcement will be moved to Sunday.
Still way too early to really talk about Drake's chances at this point, but Missouri State is a 6 seed in the current bracketology as the Valley's auto qualifier with no at-larges from the Valley. If the season forecast is accurate we're going to need to win Hoops in the Heartland to make the tourney.
