Guru Report: Thursday Conference Action

By Mel Greenberg

Here's a shorter schedule off the main conference tracker post just under this for Thursday'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, Friday games are listed in advance of Thursday results.

For now, here's the schedule. TV in whatever form is also designated, when known, with each tournament. And the Guru will give his own summary in the next 24 hours as to what is at stake in each conference.
