Best Answer

The NCAA had at that time a 40 team tournament and from there grew. * 1979: 40 teams * 1980-1982: 48 teams * 1983: 52 teams (four play-in games before the tournament) * 1984: 53 teams (five play-in games before the tournament) * 1985-2000: 64 teams * 2001- : 65 teams (with an "opening round" game to determine whether the 64th or 65th team plays in the first round)
