NCAAW conference schedules: Tournaments tip off next week!

Read on to get dates, locations and viewing information for each conference tournament. The action begins Tuesday, March 5!

NCAA Womens Basketball: Pac-12 Conference Tournament-Oregon vs Stanford
The Oregon Ducks have the chance to repeat as Pac-12 tournament champions and nab their second-ever tournament title.
Troy Wayrynen-USA TODAY Sports

Before the NCAA Tournament tips off later this month, there’s more business to tend to in conference play. Thirty-two pieces of business, to be exact, as each conference plays its postseason tournament over the next two weeks.

For some conferences, crowning a champion is just a formality, with it already being clear which teams will nab a spot in the tournament. So, these last few days will serve as tune-up games for teams in contention for a late-stage NCAA Tournament run.

But in most conferences, where just one team is allowed the privilege of playing in the NCAA Tournament, these next two weeks represent the most important games of the season (that is, except for teams still battling for better seeds in the last few regular-season games).

Will either Louisville or Notre Dame win the ACC and guarantee a No. 1 seed in the process?

Can another team dethrone Gonzaga and force the selection committee to make the WCC a two-bid conference this season?

Which power conference teams on the bubble can step up and win games, and which mid-seeded mid-majors will pull off fantastic upsets to grab their conferences’ automatic bids?

In these last two weeks before the Big Dance — just as in March Madness itself — anything is possible. And all the information you need to follow your favorite conference is below.

Enjoy the tournaments!
