Conference basketball tournaments: How to watch the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC women

Championship week is finally here.

The major women’s college basketball conference tournaments kick off this week across the country, marking the last stretch for teams to make a push before the NCAA tournament and Selection Sunday.

Here’s everything you need to know to keep up with the ACC, Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, Pac-12 and SEC tournaments this week.

ACC Tournament

When: March 6-10

Where: Greensboro Coliseum | Greensboro, North Carolina



Virginia Tech was the favorite to win the ACC tournament, but the Hokies ended the season on a brutal note. Not only did they lose back-to-back games, but star Elizabeth Kitley went down with a leg injury on Sunday afternoon. They still received a double bye in the tournament along with Notre Dame, NC State and Syracuse.

Big 12 Tournament

When: March 7-12

Where: T-Mobile Center | Kansas City, Missouri



Though Texas had the better season, Oklahoma will enter Kansas City with the top seed this week. The Sooners, after a one-point win over the Longhorns last week, claimed the double bye alongside Texas, Kansas State and Iowa State. Though a Red River Rivalry rematch in the championship game would be fun, any of those four teams can realistically make a run in what’s sure to be a very entertaining tournament.

Big East Tournament

When: March 8-11

Where: Mohegan Sun Arena | Uncasville, Connecticut

TV: FS1, FS2


UConn is once again the clear favorite to win the Big East tournament. Not only has it won the event the last three seasons, but the Huskies are hosting the tournament this spring. Creighton holds the No. 2 seed in the tournament, but it was blown out by the Huskies by a combined 64 points in their two matchups this season.

Big Ten Tournament

When: March 6-10

Where: Target Center | Minneapolis, Minnesota

TV: Peacock, BTN, Fox, CBS


All eyes will be on Caitlin Clark and Iowa this week in Minneapolis. Clark broke Pete Maravich’s all-time NCAA scoring record on Sunday afternoon while leading the Hawkeyes past Ohio State to close out the regular season. That gave Iowa the No. 2 seed in the tournament, where a potential rematch with the top-seeded Buckeyes could be waiting in the championship game.

Pac-12 Tournament

When: March 6-10

Where: MGM Grand Garden Arena | Las Vegas, Nevada

TV: Pac-12 Network, ESPN


The Pac-12 tournament is wide open, and should be a ton of fun to watch. The conference was by far the best in the country this season, and it had six teams ranked in the last AP Top 25 poll last week. Stanford is the top seed, and USC, UCLA and Oregon State will join it in receiving a first round bye in Las Vegas.

SEC Tournament

When: March 6-10

Where: Bon Secours Wellness Arena | Greenville, South Carolina

TV: SEC Network, ESPN


This one feels like South Carolina’s to lose. The Gamecocks completed a second straight undefeated regular season Sunday with a win over Tennessee. They’re not only big favorites to win the SEC tournament this week, but they’re a very popular pick to make it to the Final Four for a fourth straight season.
