In Regular Season Conference Championship Games

Six Major Conference Titles Still Up For Grabs




By Kelso Sturgeon


Saturday and Sunday are the last two days of the regular season for many of the major conferences ( including the American Athletic, Atlantic Coast, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten and Pac-12) where championships have not been decided—a fact that speaks to the high level of competition in each league.

In the conference tournaments being played this weekend championship games will be played Saturday in the Mountain West and Ohio Valley, and Sunday in the Missouri Valley, Atlantic Sun and Big South. Tournament champions receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.

Just in case you do not know how teams get into the Big Dance, here is a simple explanation from the NCAA.

There are two ways a team can earn a bid to the NCAA tournament. The 32 Division I conferences all receive an automatic bid, which they each award to the team that wins the postseason conference tournament. Regardless of how a team performed during the regular season, if they are eligible for postseason play and win their conference tournament, they receive a bid to the NCAA tournament. These teams are known as automatic qualifiers.

The second avenue for an invitation is an at-large bid. The selection committee (more on them in a second) convenes on Selection Sunday, after all regular season and conference tournament games are played, and decides which 36 teams that are not automatic qualifiers have the pedigree to earn an invitation to the tournament.

The 10-member NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Committee is responsible for selecting, seeding and bracketing the field for the NCAA Tournament. School and conference administrators are nominated by their conference, serve five-year terms and represent a cross-section of the Division I membership.




The incentive factor will be in play Saturday and Sunday in the following major conference. Listed here are the teams still in the running for the regular season championships, their conference records, plus their opponent final opponent. Some games are on Saturday and some on Sunday and what happens on Saturday could kill the incentive factor for Sunday.

(Home Team In Caps)


DAYTON FLYERS (28-2) by 27-28 over George Washington Colonials (12-18)—Dayton has lost but two games this season—both of them long on neutral floors—first to Kansas 90-84 and then to Colorado, 78-76. In other words, two losses to nationally-ranked powerhouses by a total of two points. The Flyers are 16-0 at home, have won 19 in a row and are shooting for to be one of the four #1 seeds in the NCAA Tournament. They will take no prisoners in this one.


Alabama Crimson Tide (19-11) by 7-8 over MISSOURI TIGERS (14-16)—Alabama is in major bounce-back form in this one, coming into the game of an embarrassing 87-79 home loss to an extremely week Vanderbilt (10-20) team that had not won on the road in 10 tries. Alabama has superior talent and the ability to bounce-back and should repeat its performance against the Tigers in Tuscaloosa seven weeks ago when it won, 88-74.


OREGON STATE BEAVERS (16-13) by 10-11 over California Golden Bears (13-17)—Oregon State is no world beater, stands 11-4 at home and has all the edges to gain a revenge win against the so-so Golden Bears who are a miserable 1-11 on the road this season. California, which beat Oregon State, 69-67, in Berkeley earlier this season arrives in Eugene off a 90-56 loss at Oregon.


SAINT LOUIS BILLIKENS (22-8) by 10-11 over St. Bonaventure Bonnies (19-11)—My figures have said all season the Saint Louis Billikens were one of the most underrated teams in college basketball and have proved that. It is of note they are playing at their highest level right now, have won four straight—the last two on the road—as a 3-point favorite at George Mason, 69-57, and in the game before that won at Rhode Island, 72-62, as a 6-point ‘dog. St. Bonaventure is 10-6 away from home and certainly get my respect. However, today they are just in the wrong spot at the wrong time.


LOUISIANA TECH BULLDOGS (21-8) by 15-16 over Charlotte 49ers—Louisiana Tech heads into its last regular season game at the absolute top of its game and should again dominate Charlotte just as it did earlier this season, beating the 49ers, 72-59. Charlotte, which beat a good North Texas team, 56-43, in its last start will hang with Tech for a while but will eventually give way to all the experience and depth the Bulldogs have.
