2022 Big Ten Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Indiana, Michigan, and Rutgers (despite being seeded fourth) are all in varying levels of bubble trouble heading to Indianapolis. While the top three seeds managed to finish at least two games better than the rest of the conference, five teams finished either 12-8 or 11-9 in Big Ten play. That could portend a very competitive week.

2022 American Athletic Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Houston heads to Fort Worth as an NCAA lock, though the Cougars’ chances at a top four seed are all but gone after winning just one of four games against their main league rivals, Memphis and SMU. The Tigers are probably going to make the field provided they don’t stumble in the quarters, while the Mustangs might need to reach the final.

Bracketology 2022: One Final Look at the Bubble for 2022

Richmond’s win in the Atlantic 10 final relegated someone to the NIT. But who it will end up being is anybody’s guess. I’ve made mine for better or worse.

Bracketology 2022: The Season’s Final Projection

The Selection Show starts in a short time. I’ll be back tonight with a quick recap of how well I did this season.

2022 Atlantic 10 Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Davidson is the No. 1 seed and a NCAA lock. Dayton and VCU both have at-large chances, but a potential Saturday semifinal looms as an elimination game for the loser. But bubble fans beware, as teams like St. Bonaventure, Saint Louis, and Richmond could go on a run in Washington, D.C. to steal a bid on Selection Sunday afternoon.

2022 SEC Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

The top four seeds in this season’s SEC bracket finished four games up on a quintet that finished 9-9. But don’t think that means Auburn, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Arkansas will have a walk to the semifinals in Tampa. This could be one of the most intriguing tournaments of 2022, particularly with seeds 7 through 10 still having some chance at reaching the field. Oh, there’s also the matter of a potential No. 1 seed for Auburn and UK.

2022 Ivy League Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

The fourth edition of Ivy Madness is the first since 2019. It’s also the first without Harvard—who just happens to be hosting this season. Based on the standings, you might think that both Princeton and Yale should easily make the final. However, each semifinal is a rubber match.

2022 WAC Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

The expanded WAC has an expanded tournament, one that has to play at two venues for scheduling reasons. This year the conference implemented a stepladder bracket, which isn’t great for a league that saw five teams finish with either four or five losses.

2022 Southland Conference Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

The Southland retained its stepladder bracket despite dropping down to eight members for this season. All eight teams will make the trip to Katy, Texas for a second time this year, as the conference played a non-league tip-off tournament back in January. Top-seeded Nicholls lost the championship game of that event to second-seeded Southeastern Louisiana, 77-72.

2022 Big West Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Few conferences dealt with quite as many interruptions this season as the Big West. That means things are fairly wide open. Long Beach State managed just three conference losses, but the next four seeds were all within two defeats while playing differing schedules.

2022 Pac-12 Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Despite Bill Walton’s protestations, the Conference of Champions is poised to send just three teams to the 2022 NCAA Tournament. However, if a surprise like Colorado, Oregon, Washington, or Washington State can get hot, maybe they can emulate Oregon State’s surprise title of 2021.

2022 Conference USA Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

C-USA won’t be a 14-member conference for much longer, but this year’s tournament at least sees the league’s entire membership traveling to Frisco. North Texas is the favorite and a possible at-large team should it lose. However, the Mean Green’s chances took a hit with Saturday’s loss at UTEP.

2022 ACC Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Brooklyn will be Bubbleville this week. Duke is clearly in. UNC should be following Saturday’s win in Durham. But Notre Dame, Miami, and Wake Forest are on less solid ground, while Virginia, Virginia Tech, and any potential surprise that goes on a 2021 Georgia Tech-like run can shake up the at-large picture too.

2022 Big Sky Conference Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Montana State heads to Boise as the No. 1 seed, but Southern Utah, who finished two games behind the Bobcats in the standings, will look to claim a Big Sky title on its way to the WAC.

2022 MAC Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

For the second season in a row, the MAC’s postseason event is limited to the top eight teams in the conference. it could be a wild weekend in Cleveland, as second-seeded Kent State swept top-seeded Toledo, while No. 3 seed Ohio lost twice to the Rockets and went 1-1 against the Golden Flashes.

2022 SWAC Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

The now 12-team SWAC still only features eight teams in its conference tournament. It begins in Birmingham, Alabama today with a pair of quarterfinal contests.

2022 Mountain West Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

The Mountain West is likely to send four teams to the 2022 NCAA Tournament: Boise State, Colorado State, San Diego State, and Wyoming. However, Fresno State, UNLV, and Utah State are all feisty enough to claim the auto bid and bump that total up to five.

2022 Big East Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Providence might have won the regular season title, but you would have to consider the Friars the third favorite to cut down the nets at Madison Square Garden behind both Villanova and UConn. The Huskies should have a big crowd behind them.

2022 Big 12 Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

If Saturday’s final in Kansas City features Kansas and Baylor, the top two seeds, a national No. 1 seed will be on the line. But don’t discount the conference’s other at-large threats, particularly Texas Tech and TCU.

2022 MAAC Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Until February arrived, it looked like Iona was going to cruise to a perfect conference record and an at-large bid. But losses at Niagara and Siena, and a later defeat at Manhattan, have left the Gaels needing to win three games in Atlantic City to get back to the field of 68.

2022 MEAC Tournament: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

The MEAC now only has only eight members and didn’t play with a divisional format this season, so 2022’s tournament has a simplified format, even if the quarterfinals are still spread over two nights. Norfolk State won the regular season title by three games over Howard and NC Central.

2022 America East Playoffs: Schedule, Bracket, Recent History, TV/Streaming Info

Vermont won the regular-season title by a whopping six games, losing only by a point at 2021 champ Hartford—after OT. So, the Catamounts are a heavy favorite, particularly since one of their main rivals won’t participate.
