College Basketball Championship Week: March 1 results, March 2 schedule

Your ultimate guide to the college basketball post-season begins.

Last year, darlings. This year? The first victim.

It sneaks up on you so fast, doesn't it? Last night, the first post-season action of the 2015-16 Division I basketball season began, which means it's time for our daily guide to everything that happened, and everything that's going to happen. Because we're completely insane, we're beginning now, with the conference tournaments, rather than waiting until after Selection Sunday.

Isn't that swell?

We're dispensing with the announcer listings until the national tournaments begin, because trying to fit those in here would be insane. You'll survive, we're sure.

Tuesday Men's Results

Last night, two conference tournaments got underway, with a total of six games in the Atlantic Sun and Patriot. Each tournament had one upset; a mild one in the Patriot with Holy Cross getting past Lafayette, and a rather large one in the A-Sun as Stetson stunned second-seeded NJIT. As a result of the action in the A-Sun last night, a twenty-loss team will be playing for the conference championship... one way or another.

Wednesday Men's Schedule

The two conferences which got us started last night take the day off, while three more conferences begin their knockouts. It's full quarterfinal action in the America East and NEC, while the bottom half of the Ohio Valley takes the court in their "protect the top seeds" bracket; Belmont and UT-Martin get byes into the semifinals.

Wednesday Women's Schedule

As is customary, the order of conference tournaments is effectively reversed for the women, for the most part. The Ohio Valley, getting underway with half its field today, is an exception. But some big conference get underway today as the ACC, A-10, Big Ten, and SEC dive into the fray with mostly daytime action. (In fact, the LSU-Alabama game is already over, but we'll deal with that tomorrow.)

Those big conferences, however, all feature soft opening-round contests today; the big guns are waiting for their byes to expire.
