The ACC is set to propose legislation that would add four teams to the NCAA Tournament, according to reports. 

The proposal would give the tournament, which expanded from 65 to 68 in 2011, 72 teams if the proposal is passed. 


"The idea of having two First Fours, if you will, maybe geographic," ACC commissioner John Swofford told reporters in Florida, according to the Raleigh News & Observer. "That's such a quick turnaround. You could have one maybe in Dayton and one in the western part of the states. But we will be proposing that."

Currently, four play-in games are played in Dayton, Ohio on campus at the University of Dayton, featuring the four lowest ranked at-large teams and four teams that have earned No. 16 seeds.
