ACC

Sideline Intel Bracketology: Mar. 2

Yes, it is. There are conference tournaments under way across the country. Rutgers has won two games in Madison Square Garden — something the Scarlet Knights rarely did when they played there back in their Big East.

In just a few short days, we’ll have a handful of teams locked into the bracket, with the first bid going to the winner of the Ohio Valley title game on Saturday.

But, for now, let’s take one last look at the bracket before we gear up for true championship week, and the inevitable chaos that will ensue.

Ed. Note: all-caps denote a current conference leader.
