March Madness 2014: Conference Rankings as the Final Four Approaches
Jae C. Hong

Congratulations to the Big Ten, SEC and American Athletic Conference—you are the only three conferences that still have representatives alive in the NCAA tournament.

There is a legitimate chance that college basketball fans will see a rematch of the SEC tournament championship in the national title game, but Wisconsin and Connecticut have other plans.

With that in mind, it's time to come up with conference power rankings.

Remember that tournament results obviously play a major factor, but simply having a Final Four team doesn’t necessarily guarantee one conference will be ahead of one that doesn’t. After all, the body of work and league strength from top to bottom is still worth something.

*RPI rankings are courtesy of RealTimeRPI.com as of March 19 (the day before the round of 64 began).
