Winners and losers in conference tourneys


Conference championship week in men’s college basketball always has a way of bringing out a sense of urgency for teams on the NCAA Tournament bubble.

Most intriguing are conference tournament matchups between two bubble teams. Win and advance. Or lose and wait to hear about your postseason fate. 

Such was the case for several Big East teams: Seton Hall started Thursday as one of the “next four out” but then vaulted up the line by knocking off fellow bubble foe St. John’s in the Big East quarterfinals. St. John’s had just recently taken Xavier’s spot as one of the “last four in” to start the day but now will fall out of the projected field of 68.
