March is arriving and that means the 2021 NCAA Tournament is fast approaching. Selection Sunday is March 14th, but the 2+ weeks leading up to that offers the first craziness of March Madness. 30 conferences will each conduct a tournament to determine their champion and automatic qualifier for the Big Dance.

The Horizon League was the first to get started, playing its opening round games on Thursday, February 25th. The America East and Big South get going on Saturday, February 27th and then the momentum really picks up March 3rd. Starting then, every day brings at least one and usually multiple conference tournaments tipping off.

We’ll be previewing each and every tournament from the first — the Horizon League on February 25 — to the last — the American Athletic on March 11. We’ll add full brackets and previews below as the fields are set for each conference and tip nears.
