The Summit League conference tournament gets underway next Saturday, with South Dakota State looking to remain unbeaten in league play. The Jackrabbits have been a March Madness fixture for years, so they’ll hope to avoid any upsets in what is a one-bid league.

Tuesday, March 8 Final
Game 7: Winner of Game 5 vs. Winner of Game 6, 9:00 p.m., ESPN2
Who are the favorites?
Outside of South Dakota State, who is the overwhelming favorite, North Dakota State and Oral Roberts will be teams to watch. The Golden Eagles were last year’s March Madness darlings when they made a run to the Sweet Sixteen as the No. 15 seed.
Of those three schools, UMKC, South Dakota and Western Illinois could be in play to reach the semifinals. It’s hard to see these teams winning two games against the top of the league, but these are brackets where crazy things happen.
