The draw for the 2019 NCAA tournament took place on Monday, and there are plenty of storylines to track as the first round gets underway on Saturday.
Eleven teams from New England saw their name called, with four from the NESCAC leading the way. They help to form a 64-team tournament that included 43 automatic berths and 21 at-large bids.
Each team is now building towards championship weekend Dec. 6-7 in Greensboro, N.C., and there's a strong chance teams from the region could feature. Williams has won three of the last four national titles, including back-to-back ones, and faced fellow NESCAC program Middlebury in the championship game last year.
