March 9 Conference Tournament Predictions

03/09/2019

After a fun Friday of basketball, we saw the four best OVC teams play, that have been dominating their other conference foes all this season. Campbell went down to Gardener-Webb and Canisius overcame a double-digit deficit to win in OT vs Manhattan. There were also big implications for tournament seeding that was not in conference tournaments. Maryland and Virginia Tech both defeated Minnesota and Miami-FL, respectively. Today, the America East, Colonial, and Summit conferences will start their tournaments. No new conference tournaments will start Sunday, March 10.
