Preseason bracketology: St. Louis, 4 other A10 teams projected in early field

Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

The Billikens and four additional teams from the Atlantic 10 were selected in a very early projection of the 68-team NCAA tournament field.

SB Nation unleashed their preseason look at how the 68-team NCAA tournament field will take shape, and Chris Dobbertean has the Atlantic 10, including the Saint Louis Billikens, penciled in for five spots on the bracket.

Saint Louis is projected to get the eighth seed in the South region, and other qualifying teams from the conference include Butler, St. Joseph's, Temple and VCU.

The Bulldogs are slotted for the 10th seed in the South region; the Hawks were given a 12-seed and placed in the First Four, where they are paired with the Arkansas Razorbacks; the seventh seed in the East region went to the Owls, and the Rams snagged the 11th seed in the Midwest region.

Elsewhere on the bracket, the Missouri Valley Conference got two March Madness bids with Northern Iowa and Creighton. The Bluejays are sitting in the fourth seed in the Midwest, while the Panthers have the 11th seed in the West region.

In the SEC, the Missouri Tigers are slotted as the fifth seed in the Midwest.
