NCAA Basketball Conference Tournaments

Big East Tourney: UConn beats G'town
As you may have noticed we are creeping right up on Selection Sunday which is like Christmas for Bracket Nerds.  That also means that we are right in the middle of College Basketball's conference tournaments.  Many tournaments are an all or nothing affair because many conferences only send their outright winner to the NCAA's final 68.  Some of the more competitive conferences will be sending multiple teams and performance in these games will determine exactly who goes on to be included in the field of 68 so every one of these games is exciting for the fans and very meaningful to the teams.


Yale Oarsmen chillin


The Ivy League is probably the most exciting Conference in any sport and that really isn't up for debate.  This year the Ivy Champ is going to be determined in a rare playoff.  They usually just go by the team with the best conference record but this year there is a tie between Princeton (Boooo!) and Harvard (Boooo!).  Amiright?  Ironically the playoff will be held this Saturday at Yale.  Hopefully all the Bulldogs show up and use this opportunity to lustily boo and heckle both teams who are also their two biggest rivals.  As an Eagle's fan, the opportunity to Boo absolutely everything that happens in a game is not foreign to me but it's something that might be considered strange to an outsider.  However, I would like to encourage all Yale students to show up Saturday and jump in it.   

Outside of the Ivy League, the most interesting conferences include the Big East, ACC, and Big 10. The Big East just might set a record for most schools included in the NCAA tournament this year with 11 so just about every game in their 16 team playoff includes a great team. The ACC looks like it could shape up to be another North Carolina vs. Duke battle but lots of spots in the final 68 are up for grabs here. The Big 10 has more of the top teams in Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Purdue even though it might not have the depth of the Big East.  Nearly every game is being broadcast somewhere on the ESPN network so check out these listings for brackets and tip-off times.
