NCAA Basketball: The annual argument against conference tournaments

Bracketology Nebraska's Team Sheet is Weak Loaded With Problems

Scrutiny will increase during the conference tournament.

Kansas State's Barry Brown (5) and Xavier Sneed (20) celebrate after a basket during the second half of an NCAA college basketball game against TCU in the Big 12 men's tournament Thursday, March 8, 2018, in Kansas City, Mo. The Billikens then won their next two, making it four wins in four days against higher seeds, to gain the conference title and a spot in the NCAA Tournament.

The 27th Annual Division II Men's Basketball National Championship continues at the Sanford Pentagon. Look at Michigan last year (or Michigan State nearly every year) as they peaked at just the right time. "Wagner and teammate Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman were named to the All-Tournament Team, along with Purdue's Carsen Edwards, Penn State's Tony Carr, and Rutgers" Corey Sanders.

Duke's odds, no doubt, will go down to 3/1 or worse should they win this week's ACC Conference Tournament. Tonight the Blue Devils will take the court for the first time, facing off against Notre Dame. We will need to refresh the graphic artwork and print more shirts and hats each week as teams advance, and we'll do it with as little as 48 hours' notice for three consecutive weeks.

Villanova hopped over Xavier to reach No. 2 in Monday's poll, though the third-ranked Musketeers are the No. 1 seed in the Big East Tournament.

Play-in games: Tuesday, March 13. "I think this is a case where, actually, outside of the cycle of collective bargaining, we can spend more time on it with the players' association, talking to the individual players, talking to the executive board and really trying to understand the pros and cons of potentially moving the age limit". The four winning teams will head to the next stage. Battle for Tobacco Road, Round 3?

The Bulldogs won a tough race for the Big South regular-season title with a 13-5 record, holding off 12-6 Radford and 12-6 Winthrop, but they lost to Radford in the semifinals. The Wildcats will face the Arizona State-Colorado victor in Thursday's quarterfinals as the only AP Top 25 team in the field. While the Tar Heels may be down of late, they are still the defending champions.

Expect a renewed focus from coach Dan Hurley's squad and a return to the form that produced a 16-game win streak midway through the season. Instead, we provide a more comprehensive look at each squad, including their RPI, strength of schedule, offense, defense, pace, and consistency ranking.

Meanwhile, smaller schools with loads of talent, attempt to get home and home games scheduled against big-named schools, where their phone calls are often sent straight to voicemail - never to be returned with a response.

Will he play? He hasn't ruled it out, and many indications are that Missouri's star freshman - who has missed virtually the entire season - will give it a go in the SEC Tournament. The Jayhawks will want to do everything they can to try to claim a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament, and Graham's play will be a huge factor in whether they manage it.

Not to be forgotten is Florida, the tournament's No. 3 seed.

It was obvious when the Wolverines rolled to the Big Ten Tournament Championship.

Syracuse (Last 4 In)- As much as I hate to say it, Syracuse will have to beat the defending national champs of North Carolina to receive a bid to the NCAA Tournament, in my eyes. The Wildcats have had a rollercoaster of a season. If they end up beating Colorado, I believe even with a loss to Arizona they will be in.
