Big West 2017-18 Tournament Preview

The UC schools dominated the Big West this season, but conference stalwarts Long Beach State and Hawaii have Tourney aspirations as well. Parity is king in what should be one of the most competitive conference tournaments this March.

Colonial 2017-18 Tournament Preview

Charleston was the preseason CAA darling, and they managed to snag the 1-seed after a bumper-than-expected season. But the CAA looks wide open for any of the top five squads, so we could see some chaos in South Carolina...

WAC 2016-17 Tournament Preview

After finally wrestling a tournament berth away from New Mexico State last year, CSU-Bakersfield looks to make it two in a row as the 1-seed. NMSU is still lurking, though, and with no Grand Canyon in the tourney, it likely comes down to those two.

Southland 2016-17 Tournament Preview

For the first time in forever (Frozen voice), the SLC is completely up for grabs - basically, because Brad Underwood is terrorizing another conference now. This conference had 12 of the 13 teams finish 7-11 or better, so despite New Orleans winning the league outright, competition will be fierce.

Big Ten 2016-17 Tournament Preview

The top of the Big Ten is softer than a baby's bottom (That's a weird phrase, right? I'm pretty sure that's a creepy phrase). As a result, this tournament's pretty open - Purdue is the favorite, but they've dropped a few odd games along the way. Also - it's dumb that this tournament is in Washington, DC!

C-USA 2016-17 Tournament Preview

Spoiler - Marshall did not win this conference like I predicted. But hey, at least I took my shot! Middle Tennessee has a decent chance at an at-large, so we could very well see a bid stolen in Birmingham. Plenty of candidates abound, but the Blue Raiders were dominant this season, so it will be a tall task.

Big 12 2016-17 Tournament Preview

Guess who won the conference? I'll wait. 

You're right, it was Kansas! But the Sprint Center has a tendency to get wild, with the Jayhawks only backing up their regular season crown twice in the last 5 years. Who will reign supreme this year?

SWAC 2016-17 Tournament Preview

I know you're all dying to see who will win the SWAC...but wait! Texas Southern could actually, maybe, possibly get a 15-seed! That is, assuming they can get through the "gauntlet" of the SWAC tournament - the second-place team (Alcorn St.) is banned from the postseason, so maybe gauntlet is the wrong word.

Summit 2016-17 Tournament Preview

There's a clear best player in this league (MIKE DAUM), but I truly don't know who the best team is. South Dakota rode a great group of transfers to a surprise regular season title, and the tournament is up the road in Sioux Falls. Still, though, this league is about as open as it gets.
