The rest of the Conferences

ACC

Upset Alert:
For those wanted the ACC Championship to be North Carolina-Duke III, sorry.
Georgia Tech spoiled the party. At least Duke held up their end of the bargain, beating NC State.

Championship: Georgia Tech(27)-Duke(5) (noon ESPN)

Big 10

Illinois won an emotional game against Minnesota, but it doesn't get any easier as they are going to have to carry those same heavy hearts into a matchup with Wisconsin (who may have ended the tournament dreams of Iowa).

Championship: Wisconsin(12)-Illinois(2) (2:30 CBS)

Big 12

Now Tech has an opportunity to avenge OSU's season sweep of the Red Raiders. Plus, it's Eddie Sutton vs. Bobby Knight. All good reasons to watch.

Championship: Texas Tech(28)-Oklahoma State(7) (1:00 PM ESPN)

SEC

Championship: Florida(20)-Kentucky(8) (noon CBS)

Southland

Championship: SE Louisiana-Northwestern State(117) (2:00 PM ESPN2)

SWAC

Championship: Alabama A&M(239)-Alabama State (11:00 AM ESPN2) While it's not Duke-UNC in terms of a famous rivalry, it is no less tense. Throw in an NCAA berth on the line, and this could be worth checking out.

And all shall be revealed

The brackets will be announced at 5:00 PM today on CBS

Monday: Catching up
