College Basketball Conference Breakdowns

College Basketball Conference Breakdowns

March Madness is quickly approaching, and this article is meant to help us gauge who will fill the field of 68 come March 17th (Selection Sunday). “Locks” are teams that I believe are safely in the NCAA Tournament. “Work left to do” is simply what it says, meaning the team has some work to do to receive an at-large bid. Lastly, if a team does not make it in this article, I am giving them realistically no chance to make it, unless a miracle happens.
