The second best week of the college basketball season is here. It’s like a preview/trailer for the NCAA Tournament. It is Conference championship week. Conference championship week is damn near as good as week on of the NCAA Tournament. Not as good, but close. Growing up, I lived right down the road from the Greensboro Coliseum. I grew up skipping school and going to the ACC Tournament. It was the best. Hell, even if you didn’t skip school, the teachers would bring out the televisions and that’s about all you would do that day.
Conference championship week has had some wild moments. Such as Kemba Walker’s shot to beat Pittsburgh in the Big East tournament. The craziest moment of conference championship week has to be UConn hitting a almost full court shot to snd the game to the fourth overtime against Cincinnati.
Doesn’t get more wild than that. You get the point, it is the best time of the year for college basketball.
