Conference Tournament season is officially underway, as teams are earning automatic bids to play in the NCAA Tournament. The 2017 Missouri Valley Conference Tournament is set to run from Thursday, March 2 through Sunday, March 5 at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Missouri.

And don’t you dare underestimate this conference, as these schools may be small, but they can flat-out play. Joe Lunardi currently has Wichita State as an 8-seed and Illinois State as an 11-seed, and we all know what kind of damage Northern Iowa can do to your March Madness bracket.

Let’s take some time to breakdown the bracket and schedule for this weekend’s MVC Tournament. I highly recommend following along with the action, as you might find 2017’s Cinderella.
