The ACC women’s tournament ended March 6 in Greensboro, N.C.

Davidson’s Wildcats will head to Washington this week for the Atlantic 10 men’s tournament, while the Charlotte 49ers’ men and women head to Frisco, Texas, for the Conference USA tournaments.

The Big 12, Big East, Big Ten, SEC and Pac-12 also will hold their tournaments.

Then, it’s bracket time and Selection Sunday.

The field for the men’s NCAA tournament will be revealed at 6 p.m. on March 13 on CBS, followed by the women’s selection show at 8 p.m. on ESPN.
