Best Answer

The NCAA tournament distributes money to conferences based upon how many games the member teams play in the tournament. Then the conference divides that money equally among the member teams. For participation in the tournament the NCAA gives teams a travel allowance for each game that they play, but the real money comes from their share of the conference money. For example the MVC received $2.95 million based upon its success between 2000-2005, whereas the Big 12 received $14.4 million. Teams that make it to the first round this year and lose receive $82,000 in travel money, and they receive more if they advance.

Is the Miami hurricanes basketball team going to the 2012 ncaa tournament?

The Hurricanes can reach the 2012 tournament by winning the ACC Tournament. In order to do so, they would need to beat Georgia Tech, FSU, Duke/Clemson/or Virginia Tech, and UNC/UVA/Maryland/Wake Forest/NC State/or Boston College. If they do not win the ACC Tournament, they might be able to make it into the tournament as an at-large selection if they win 3 games in the ACC Tournament. They may still be able to make it with 1 or 2 wins but it is not nearly as likely with 3 or 4 wins (win tournament).
