But we have started to turn the corner."

Sideways comment on the subject... I've not been a fan of major conference tournaments for quite some time.

Why expend the energy and possibly 2 to 3 games.. the week before the NCAA, where you must then win two straight games in 48 hours to get to the Sweet 16.

 

Why play a tournament the week before that -- after the regular season.

The regular season championship and standings should be enough to seed the 68 teams (counting play-in games).

Some teams have qualified this past weekend, up to last night (Tue of this week). They're finished until next Thur/Fri.
