Finally, the major conference tournaments have begun! All of these three conferences are on the coasts, so that’s why they’re in the same post. The ACC, SEC, and Pac-12 are all extremely entertaining and will get you into the mood for some championship basketball if you somehow aren’t in that mood yet! Worried about the corona virus?! Stay inside and watch college basketball and stay away from this terrible disease! Let’s get into the predictions and previews.
In part four of five, we have the MAAC, MEAC, and the SWAC. Three tournaments all starting on the tenth and ending on the fourteenth of March, every team needs to win their conference to get a bid so expect some high emotions! Eight more days……
In part three of the lesser conference tournament previews and predictions, we have two more strong teams coming out in Vermont and whoever the MAC gives us. I can hear One Shining Moment on repeat in my head as we are just over a week till the best month in sports! I can’t wait!
While some of these tournaments have already started, it doesn’t matter as each of these conferences have a clear favorite where it’s the tournament is just a formality for their inevitable success later this week or earlier next week. But it’s March so that means that bad basketball teams can turn into the Mon-stars from Space Jam so let’s get into the previews and predictions.
Continuing on from part one, here are the other “lesser” conference tournament preview and predictions. Once again, sorry for all the favorite predictions but hey, they’re favorites for a reason.
IT’S MARCH! Arguably the greatest month in sports, I would say it is, March is home to the greatest playoffs in any sport, March Madness. However, the teaser for March Madness is the conference tournaments. The big conferences start their tournaments next week but the teams that need the automatic bid for the NCAA Tournament play this week. All that being said here’s a quick preview and prediction for the “lesser” conference tournaments that will/have started this week.
March Madness is traditionally dominated by the “bluebloods” or the teams that win year after year. Those teams are Kentucky, Kansas, Duke, Villanova, UNC, Louisville, MSU, and Gonzaga. Rarely is there a year without at least one of these eight teams in the Final Four. With a crazy year filled with upsets, will some of these bluebloods be upset in March. Let’s look at the first half of the bluebloods.
Everyone knows that names are made in March. Last year, Jarrett Culver and Ja Morant became household names due to their March heroics. This year, four players look to be the next Kemba Walker, Shabazz Napier, or Gordon Hayward to carry a lesser program to success in March Madness.
After an action filled All-Star weekend in the Windy City, the NBA playoffs and off-season are on the horizon. Here’s one question that each Western Conference team should think about for the rest of the season or in the offseason.
