Can the NCAA's All-Time Rebounder Kenneth Faried lead Morhead State to the Big Dance?

March Madness is under way, with most of the low to mid major conferences having already began their tournaments.

For many teams, the only possibility for them to make the Big Dance is by winning their conference tournament, making this weekend one of the most exciting periods of the entire college basketball season.

These tournaments magnify the phrase "Go hard or go home." One bad shooting performance could mark the end of the season for a mid-major team that dominated the regular season, while a hot streak could take a team with a losing record all the way to the NCAA Tournament.

My predictions are be based largely off of how well teams played in-conference during the regular season, but there will almost certainly be upsets that very few people could have imagined before hand.

When there is an automatic bid to the Big Dance up for grabs, every school is given at least a little hope that they can lock up one of the 68 precious seeds.

I hope you find this article enjoyable, and remember that I do not have any impact on what actually happens. These are just predictions so there is no need to get overly emotional if your team was not picked to win their respective conference tournament.

Please enjoy!

Note: The Ivy League is the only conference that does not have a tournament, but the winner of the Princeton-Harvard game on Saturday will make the NCAA Tournament. Therefore, I will still make a slide about the match-up between the rival schools.
