2021-2022 cbhsports College Basketball Conference Tournament Preview (3/7-3/13)

Image Courtesy: USA Today

Things will look slightly different in this college basketball preview post. No different from usual, I will show the AP top six entering the week. Then, I will preview each of the Power 6 conference tournaments (ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12, SEC, also note that mid major conference tournaments happened this past week). The preview will include a link to each of the conference tournament brackets, a link to my video preview of each that includes my predictions on my YouTube channel, and a few thoughts I have for each conference tournament. All conference tournament brackets and preview videos will be uploaded and hyperlinked by Tuesday night.

AP Top 6
1.Gonzaga
2.Arizona
3.Baylor
4.Duke
5.Auburn
6.Kansas

ACC (Brooklyn)
Bracket
Video Preview
Thoughts: Despite losing to North Carolina in Coach K’s final game at Cameron Indoor Stadium, the Blue Devils should be the favorite to win the ACC Tournament this week in Brooklyn. Other dangerous teams in the bracket include two seed Notre Dame, three seed North Carolina, four seed Miami, five seed Wake Forest, and seven seed Virginia Tech. Six seed Virginia will need to win the ACC Tournament to get to another NCAA Tournament but are definitely capable of doing so as the conference is “down” this year by many standards. Projected Winner: Duke

Big 12 (Kansas City)
Bracket
Video Preview
Thoughts:
Top three seeds Kansas, Baylor, and Texas Tech should be the easy favorites to win Kansas City this week. Baylor is playing the best of late, with a win over Kansas. All three, with a Big 12 Tournament championship, would likely be a surefire number one seed. Texas is the only other team as the four seed that is a legitimate second weekend NCAA Tournament team.
Projected Winner: Baylor

Big East (New York City)
Bracket
Video Preview
Thoughts:
Despite winning the Big East for the first time ever, Providence was swept by two seed and Big East mainstay Villanova. Villanova, led by guard Collin Gillespie, should be the favorite to win in Madison Square Garden.
Projected Winner: Villanova

Big Ten (Indianapolis)
Bracket
Video Preview
Thoughts:
Despite falling from the top spot in the Big Ten in the last two weeks, guard Jaden Ivey and big Trevion Williams could still lead the Boilermakers to a championship. Top seed Illinois, two seed Wisconsin, five seed Iowa, and others should challenge Purdue for the conference tournament championship.
Projected Winner: Purdue

Pac-12 (Las Vegas)
Bracket
Video Preview
Thoughts:
Arizona, UCLA, and USC are the only surefire NCAA Tournament teams as the top three seeds in the Pac-12. Arizona has been one of if not the best team in the country and UCLA and USC are capable of big runs in March as well.
Projected Winner: Arizona

SEC (Tampa)
Bracket
Video Preview
Thoughts:
Top four seeds Auburn, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Arkansas have separated themselves from the rest of the pack. LSU and Alabama are the other teams capable of a March run, but Kentucky, led by likely national player of the year Oscar Tshiebwe
Projected Winner: Kentucky
