  3. Previewing the East Regional: Does Indiana survive the chalk?

    Mar 28, 2013, 8:47 AM EDT

    Indiana Hoosier guard Victor Oladipo and forward Cody Zeller celebrate during the second half of their third round NCAA tournament basketball game against the Temple Owls in Dayton

    Favorite: Indiana The Hoosiers have their issues. They haven’t played all that well in this tournament to date. They lack some toughness in their front court. Their back court doesn’t have the size to deal with bigger guards like Michael Carter-Williams and Brandon Triche. But at the end of the day, Indiana was still the…

  4. East Region Preview: Indiana didn’t get Indy, which is a good thing?

    Mar 18, 2013, 10:01 AM EDT

    Indiana v Michigan State

    Indiana didn’t get Indianapolis. The Hoosiers lost to Wisconsin in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament, meaning that they sat at home on their couch and watched as Louisville beat Notre Dame and then Syracuse to win the Big East tournament title. As a result, the Cardinals played their way into the No. 1…

    Nate Austin, Kelly Olynyk

    After much consternation and discussion and analysis in the six days since Gonzaga ended their season by winning the WCC tournament, it turns out that the Zags did end up getting the No. 1 seed out West. That means that, if they keep on winning, they’ll be playing their first two games in Salt Lake…

    Missouri Tigers v Florida Gators

    Ole Miss can make the NCAA tournament Selection Committee’s job a whole lot easier Sunday. If the Rebels can pull the upset and beat No. 13 Florida in the SEC championship game, they will move from a bubble team to an automatic bid and be able to Sunday evening. If not, things could get dicey.…

    Duke Miami

    The ACC was weird this season. Miami won the league. Think about that. Miami. That, alone, is enough to leave you scratching your head. But there’s more to it. Duke was the best team in the country heading into conference play and looks like they are right back in that conversation now that Ryan Kelly…

    It hasn’t always been easy to watch the SEC this season. Florida has been the conference’s best team, but after that we see little differentiation and a whole bunch of bad losses by teams in the middle of the conference. So what does that mean for the SEC tournament in Nashville? It could mean a…

  16. 2013 SWAC Tournament preview

    Mar 12, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Alabama A&M v Vanderbilt

    Due to extenuating circumstances, the SWAC Tournament has one of the most unique formats of any postseason conference tournament this year.

Add in the fact that the third place team, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, is in the same situation, and…

This week in New York City, though, it will come to a conclusion with the last conference tournament for the Big East as…

    Quietly, Norfolk State has picked up where it left off last year. The Spartans shocked Missouri with a second-round (ahem, first round) victory in the NCAA Tournament as a two seed last season. This year, they’re 21-10 with perfect 16-0 conference record. Now it’s time for someone to earn the automatic bid. Norfolk State has…

    The MAAC is wild, been that way all season.

    When C.J. McCollum went down with a broken foot in a January non-conference game against VCU, it appeared one of the major storylines in mid-major basketball had gone down with it. But that’s not the way it turned out. Bucknell won the regular season championship outright, but Lehigh continued to play strong basketball, with Lafayette…
