Roy Williams likely back at next practice

The North Carolina coach is expected to be at the team's next practice and game following a bout with vertigo that sidelined him for part of Tuesday's win at Boston College. The school told ESPN's Andy Katz the coach is "feeling much better."

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Men's basketball committee chair Joe Castiglione had potentially good news for teams like Monmouth that generally have to win an automatic qualifying bid: "Typically we have between 9-11 conferences that send multiple teams to the tournament. This year I think you could make the case for about 14 leagues" if the top team fails to win the AQ. Perhaps Arkansas-Little Rock & Valparaiso fit that category too? We'll find out in just over a month.
