There are 16 spots available in the final 16. That's why they use terms like "round of 16" and "final 16 teams." Fifteen regionals are held to decide spots, and the University of Washington qualifies automatically as the host team. That makes 16 teams for 16 spots. How do you propose getting Stanford in at this point?
