March is finally here, which means it's time to shift your focus to college basketball. There's no better way to start your Madness research than to catch some conference tournament action.

As a reminder, the winner of each of these conference tournaments get an automatic bid into the 68-team tournament. This fact becomes particularly significant in the smaller conferences that only have one team that's good enough to make the tournament without winning the conference tournament; if another team wins the tournament title—one that wouldn't make it without the victory—that shrinks the bubble by one team. 

Here's the TV schedule for every conference tournament. All times are eastern unless otherwise noted.
