The remaining slots 30 slots are at-large berths and are chosen by a selection committee appointed by the NCAA. The selection process and tournament seedings are based on RPI data and rankings and win-loss records and a some intangibles. 

Playoff brackets are constructed with minimizing travel expenses in mind. While this does present some of the best teams with being eliminated early, at the same time it creates some very exciting matches.   There are 64 teams who receive invitations, some for outright winning their conference, conference tournament; and other receiving at-large invitations because they are in power conferences.  The tournament is split into four (4) regions, though not geographical, with each region having four seeds. In all regions, the #1 seed plays the #16 seed; the #2 team plays the #15, and so on. The effect of this seeding structure ensures that the better a team is seeded, the worse-seeded their opponents will be. The brackets are not reseeded after each round.
