The 8 conference teams have a year end tournament, they're seeded according to record of course. Then the winner of that advances to the big NCAA tournament with 68 teams (starting this year). You get into the NCAA tournament by either winning your conference (31 of them), or being selected as a sort of "best of the rest" at large bid to fill it out by a committee. Teams in small conferences like the Patriot League pretty rarely get in w/o winning their conference, maybe never.
