  1. ^ UCSD will remain eligible for national championships in four of its sports during its transition to Division I. Men's and women's water polo and the coeducational sport of fencing have one national championship for all three NCAA divisions, while men's volleyball has a combined Division I/II national championship.
  2. ^ The tournament was originally scheduled to be held at Coliseo Municipal Tomás Dones in Fajardo, Puerto Rico,[71] but was moved to Coastal Carolina University due to major damage from Hurricane Maria. Coastal was chosen in part because its arena was available on every scheduled tournament day.[72]
  3. ^ The tournament was originally scheduled for the Sports and Fitness Center in Saint Thomas, US Virgin Islands, but was moved due to damage from Hurricanes Irma and Maria. Organizers decided to solicit hosting bids from the eight participating teams, with Liberty selected as the substitute host on September 29.[73]

Upsets[]

An upset is a victory by an underdog team. In the context of NCAA Division I Men's Basketball, this generally constitutes an unranked team defeating a team currently ranked in the Top 25. This list will highlight those upsets of ranked teams by unranked teams as well as upsets of #1 teams. Rankings are from the AP poll.

Bold type indicates winning teams in "true road games"—i.e., those played on an opponent's home court (including secondary homes, such as Intrust Bank Arena for Wichita State).
