Conference tournaments begin this week. In fact, the Atlantic Sun tips off on Tuesday and usher in the most exciting two weeks in all of basketball. As Selection Sunday draws closer, every game for the bubble teams is huge. Loyola (IL) is probably not a bubble team despite their 25-5 record heading into Arch Madness. And while the Missouri Valley tournament has lost some of its intrigue from years past, the Ramblers are a team to watch as potential upset squad in the NCAA Tournament.
