The NCAA Tournament field will be set on Monday, and today we will see 18 conference tournament champions crowned, and 18 automatic berths to the NCAA Tournament awarded.
We have already had four teams qualify automatically for the tournament, with Loyola Marymount and Penn winning their respective regular season conference titles (neither conference plays a post-season tournament) while Drexel and University of Maryland-Baltimore County both won conference titles on Saturday.
Today, a total of 18 tournament finals will be played, while a 19th automatic berth is awarded to the Pac-12 champion, which will either be Washington or UCLA, depending on whether the Huskies can win their regular season finale against Oregon State.
A total of nine of today’s conference finals will be available for viewing on either national television or live stream via ESPN3, with the ACC, Big East and Big 10 Final serving as the marquee match-ups of the day.
SBI will be providing live commentary on today’s conference tournaments, including score updates, analysis, breakdowns of the top prospects in each match, and more, so be sure to join us for all the action. You can find all the TV listings, and the full schedule of today’s championship matches here as well.
