In college basketball the only thing as important as the NCAA Tournament is the conference tournament. All season long teams across the country compete for a winning record that will guarantee them a top seed in the conference tournament. Earning a top seed comes with its benefits as in some instances it could grant teams with a first and/or second round bye. For teams that struggle during the regular season the conference tournament is the light at the end of the tunnel that can send them to the NCAA Tournament regardless of past performances. Winners of each conference tournament are crowned as conference champions and receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
Most Division 1 Conferences host a tournament at the end of the regular season to determine the leagues champion. However, conferences that do not hold a tournament determine a champion based on regular season standings. The conference tournaments are usually broken down into four rounds but may vary depending on the conference. These tournaments can be just as exciting as watching the NCAA Tournament as teams leave it all on the court with high hopes of advancing into March Madness.
