Four of the teams in the field are currently in the top 100 of the Ken Pomeroy ratings: No. 33 Missouri, No. 48 Utah State, No. 53 Dayton and No. 82 Pittsburgh. Utah State is the only team in the field that played in the NCAA tournament last season. Penn, Missouri and Loyola played in the NCAA tournament in 2018.
