NCAA Men's Basketball Top 25 Recap 3/10/2020 Conference Tournament Time

in Sports Talk Social9 months ago


Alright, so I can admit when I make a mistake. Since the regular season has ended, the site where I normally get my scores and schedule has shifted their focus to the NCAA tournament. This has left me at a loss as I try to do my best to cover the conference tournaments that are beginning.

A great big thanks to @bigtom13 for pointing my error out to me and what a great call on that Saint Mary's/BYU game! I have a feeling we are going to see quite a few more upsets like this leading up to the tournament. Many of these unranked teams are going to be fighting for a spot.

Gonzaga easily handled San Francisco to move on in their tournament but today they face the Saint Mary's team that we just saw beat #14 BYU.

Most other top 25 teams don't start their conference games until Thursday. That doesn't mean there won't be some exciting games between now and then.

What conference tournament are you going to be keeping your eye on this year? Do you have any favorites playing over the next two days? Let me know in the comments!

I was really surprised by the score in BYU v St. Mary's. Not the margin, but I'd have guessed each team to score 20 more...

You might want to remember BYU when you are filling out your tournament bracket. That's a really good basketball team that I think has a good chance to be playing on the second weekend of the NCAAs.

I was also surprised that E. Kentucky beat Wofford so handily. I'll probably remember that when bracket time comes also...

This is a cool column. Thanks for all the work it takes!

BYU alum here.

I was surprised BYU is even good this year. They might make it to the Sweet 16 if they pick up their game for the Tournament.
