With the NCAA regular season finally complete, it's March Madness again. I personally can barely contain my excitement. I mean, I've been looking for an excuse to slack off at work for the past few months and with a full slate of games to watch this week, my office bandwidth will be running a bit slower than usual.
The conference championship means something different for each team. For some it's an opportunity to move up, or down, in the NCAA tournament seeding. For teams on the bubble a strong showing in their conference tournament is the difference between playing in the NIT or the big dance. For the bottom feeders? It's one last chance to redeem a lost season and grab an unprecedented seed in the NCAA tourney.
This list encompasses not necessarily the 10 best players in the nation, simply the ten players that should most draw your attention this week, for better or ill.
