Sunday College BBall Conference Tourney Finals Open Thread

USA TODAY Sports

Selection/Saint Patrick's Sunday is here!

But before we get to the official announcement of the 68 teams and the brackets (Bruins Nation will have a separate open thread for the Selection Show which begins at 3 pm PT on CBS) there are still 4 more games to play, and they have important implications in seeding. These tournament finals are also very important in determining conference championships since an entire regular season can't be trusted and no players will get hurt or anything in providing an additional source of revenue to the conferences.

Of the eight teams playing today, seven should be good for the tourney. Only Ole Miss remains on the bubble, though advancing to the finals will certainly help their cause. The other teams are just jockeying for higher seeds and possible slots in their home regions. The appearances of coaches Billy Donovan and Shaka Smart may also be of some specific interest to Bruin fans.

Here's the schedule for today:

ACC Tournament Final 10 am PT on ESPN

North Carolina vs (9) Miami preview

Atlantic 10 Tournament Final - 10 am PT on CBS

(25) Virginia Commonwealth vs (16) Saint Louis preview

SEC Tournament Final 10 am PT on ABC

Ole Miss vs (13) Florida preview

B1G Ten Tournament Final 12:30 PT on CBS

(22) Wisconsin vs (10) Ohio State preview

This is our open thread to discuss today's games, more fallout from last night's Pac-12 Tourney final loss, and any and all thoughts on who goes where in the brackets. Be looking for the Selection Show Open thread this afternoon around 2:30 PT. Have at it.

GO BRUINS!!
