Yes, conference tournaments begin today. Specifically the Big South (including Liberty and Seth Curry), Horizon, and Ohio Valley conferences. Even though the winner of two of these three tournaments is sure to be a 16 seed, it's still March Madness - win or go home.
To get you in the mood for the greatest time of the year, here are two videos. The first, courtesy of The Dagger, is a recap of a particularly great game, the 2005 Regional Final between Illinois and Arizona.
And I feel I have to include "One Shining Moment" from last year.
Both videos gave me the chills, perhaps because I'm sitting in an unheated room, perhaps not. Either way, enjoy the greatest month of the year.
