In the NCAA basketball tournament, are all of the conference champions guaranteed a higher seed over all of the at-large teams?

Isn't getting an "automatic bid" enough of a reward for winning a division? Especially since the 8-8 Chargers finished three games behind another team in the same conference which did not make the playoffs at all.

And there is a lack of consistency here; otherwise the two wild cards in each conference would need to specifically be the two second-place teams with the best records.

So either the division finish is the be-and-and-end-all, or it isn't.
