We're entering the final weeks for players to withdraw from the NBA draft. Things should start to get interesting after the draft lottery. While I wait on Hibbert and Green, I shall now spend some time obsessing over baseball. You see, I’m a sucker for brackets:
8 Teams, Two 4 Team Double Elimination Tournaments, just like College World Series
SEC Baseball Tournament
CUSA Baseball Tournament
Big East Baseball Tournament
8 Teams, Round Robin format
ACC Baseball Tournament
Big 12 Baseball Tournament
6 Teams, Double Elimination, No Byes
Missouri Valley Baseball Tournament
Atlantic Sun Baseball Tournament
6 Teams, Double Elimination, With Byes
Mountain West Baseball Tournament
Big Ten Baseball Tournament
8 Teams, First Day Single Elimination, then Double Elimination
Big South Baseball Tournament
10 Teams, First Day Single Elimination, then Double Elimination
Southern Conference Baseball Tournament
The WCC does not have a tournament, only a championship series, and NCAA tournament veteran Pepperdine will not be participating next weekend.
The Pac 10 and Big West don’t have baseball tournaments, but don’t sleep on the upcoming Arizona vs Arizona St., Long Beach State vs Cal State Fullerton, and UC Irvine vs UC Riverside series to end the regular season.
As long as I'm off topic, do you remember the last time I discussed another sport? Do you remember this NBA comment? "The fact that the Suns and the Mavericks are now the best teams in the NBA instead of the Spurs and the Pistons, says a lot about how the game has changed." Doh!
