    March Madness officially begins today with the start of the conference tournaments. On tap today:

    Big South Conference in Conway, SC. - First Round Matchups begin at noon today with Winthrop playing Radford followed by UNC-Asheville vs. Longwood. In the night session, Campbell plays Presbyterian and host Coastal Carolina takes on Liberty. The top seeds get a BYE to the 2nd Round which starts on Thursday.

    Horizon League - 1st Round Matchups take place at campus sites tonight, with Loyola-Chicago @ Youngstown State, Cleveland State @ Illinois-Chicago and Wisconsin-Milwaukee @ Wisconsin-Green Bay. Play moves to Valparaiso, IN on Friday night for the next two rounds. Top seed Valparaiso and runner-up Detroit get double BYE's thru to the semifinals on Saturday. The champion wont be crowned until next Tuesday when the highest remaining seed will host the game in the most complicated tournament out there.

    LOVE this time of year!

    I love Conference tournaments, especially the ones from the smaller conferences where it's do or die. I love the Big East Tournament too, sadly it's the last one in its current form.
