Guru Report: Saturday Conference Action

By Mel Greenberg

Here's a shorter schedule off the main conference tracker post just under this for Saturday's games.

S before a team with a numeral is the seed number while R is the AP ranking if a team has one. Next AP ranking numbers will be inserted after Monday's poll is released. This file being updated daily for results, records of teams advancing, and new tournament pairings as they are determined.

Will also include next day schedule so you see the advancement path. Thus, Sunday games are listed in advance of Saturday results.

For now, here's the schedule. TV in whatever form is also designated, when known, with each tournament. Key non-tournament games such as the Ivy League are also added.
