An NCAA committee has recommended six conferences have their champions meet in a playoff to determine the final three automatic berths in the men's basketball tournament.

The format was necessary because more than 30 conferences will be eligible in 1991 for the 30 automatic bids to the tournament.The Division I Men's Basketball Committee recommended the Northeast Conference play the Patriot League, the Southland play the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference and the Southwestern Athletic Conference play the Big South.
