He predicted 63 out of 65 teams into the field last year, and 52 within one of the actual seed, which was more accurate than just about every known Bracket Projections site.

  • Conference Tournament News, Notes and Highlighted Match-ups (March 15)

    Mar 15, 2008, 03:50 am
    Twelve conference championship games are on tap today, and Drew Barnette gives us a preview of all of them.

    Stanford and UCLA will face each other for the third time, which is fitting considering how their last meeting ended in controversy.

    Saint Joseph's and Temple are both on the bubble, but one of those teams will be able to punch their ticket with the automatic bid in the Atlantic Ten.

    Kent State won a thriller in their semifinal game, and all the eyes of the bubble teams will be on them to see if they can knock off Akron and preventing another bubble from bursting.

    Georgetown and Pittsburgh will face off in the Big East Championship.

    ACC, SEC (hopefully), Big Ten and Big Twelve semifinals are today as well.

    All of that, and more, as we're now just one day away from Selection Sunday.
