2015 Men's College Basketball Conference Tournament Information

Kevin C. Cox

Before the field of 68 is revealed, 32 teams will earn their conferences' automatic bids. Blogging The Bracket has information on each conference tournament -- sites, dates, and even the names of the unlucky teams who will be frozen out. TV info from network websites/announcements and Matt's College Sports on TV Website.

Here's a complete list of conference tournament information for the 2014-15 season, including information about which teams will sit their respective leagues' elimination events out, either due to APR failings or a pending conference move.

Unconfirmed dates are tentative and based on a Selection Sunday date of March 15, 2015. Please e-mail any updates to bloggingthebracket at gmail dot com.
