How are NCAA's basketball tournament teams selected?

There are 64 teams in the single-elimination tournament. Of those, 32 qualify automatically as conference champions at winning conference tournaments. The rest will be selected at the large teams of the Division I Women's Basketball Championship Sports Committee.
