KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -The NCAA is taking things slow when it comes to deciding whether to expand the men's basketball tournament.
Officials have met with conference commissioners, university presidents and athletic directors about the possibility, but haven't gotten past the discussion stage yet.
NCAA senior vice president Greg Shaheen says there aren't any new developments from the fall, when the organization first started to look at expansion.
Some coaches and administrators like the idea of adding teams to college basketball's big dance, saying it needs to grow to accommodate the 347 Division I teams. Others like the tournament the way it is and believe expansion would water down the regular season and conference tournaments.
