The Pac-12 conference may have the same lineup as last year, but there's been a mini-quake of movement among other Division 1 conferences in NCAA men's college basketball.
One of the biggest changes is the Atlantic Coast Conference has added two former Big East powerhouses, Pittsburgh and Syracuse. But the Big East has gained Butler, Xavier and Creighton.
These smaller schools don't have as long a history of NCAA tournament success as Pittsburgh and Syracuse have, but in recent years they've more than held their own with the big boys.
