I’m happy to report that March is in full swing. At press time, several tournaments have ended but the major conferences will remain in play through Sunday afternoon. It’s worth noting that despite what happened to Murray State, most low and mid-majors rig their tournaments as heavily as possible to favor regular season champions. These conferences adopt ladder brackets to give top teams byes, and many host their tournaments on the home floors of the top seeds. This means many more teams in the 1-2 spots win conference tournaments, making what Furman did all the more impressive.
