They call it "Championship Week," but it really runs for 13 days. Every conference wants to get at least their championship game on TV, so that means we get staggered starts all across the board for the smaller conferences around the country. That means that here at AE, we call it Championship "Week," and we bring you daily updates as to what teams are playing, when they're playing, and we'll even give you links to streaming video where applicable.
Three conferences get us started tonight, and all 8 games will be going on simultaneously once we pass the 7 o'clock mark. All of the games are being played at the higher seed's home courts for these three tournaments, so we should get some pretty wild crowds along the way. All times are Central, naturally.
