Following are straight-up and point-spread results for all of the "Off" conferences in NCAA Tournament play since 1994. While straight-up wins are certainly not common for these lower-echelon conference reps in NCAA action, they are not unheard of, either, as the best of this lot has been able to cause real damage in recent years.

Some of those who have famously succeeded in sub-regionals over the past decade include last year's darling, Florida Gulf Coast, plus others from recent years such as Morehead State, Siena, Winthrop, Bucknell, Vermont, Northwestern State, Montana, Lehigh, and Norfolk State.

Some of these lower-rung leagues have definitely done better than others vs. the point-spread in NCAA play. Such as Southern Conference teams, now 17-7-1 vs. the line in NCAA play since '94 (Davidson covering last year vs. Marquette).

Meanwhile, America East reps have been steady spread losers (8-16) in the Dance since '94, though Albany covered a big price last year vs. Duke.

"Ws" and "Ls" below reflect the point-spread result for the "off" team in the matchup:
