In its first season of existence, the American Athletic Conference certainly did not disappoint this season on the hardwood, and the upcoming conference tournament should be no different as the field has now been set with the regular season finished.

On Saturday, though, after the games were finished, there was a coin toss between the Cincinnati Bearcats and the Louisville Cardinals to see who would get top billing in the tournament.

In the end, it was the Bearcats who won the toss and will go into the tournament with the top-seed.

While it might not be as exciting as the old Big East Tournaments that we all knew and loved, there’s a field here that can definitely bring the excitement.

Things in this one will get kicked off on Mar. 12 and will carry on through the 15th.

As you look at this bracket, this can be anyone’s for the taking as it stands right now. Can Larry Brown and SMU take it? The defending national champion Louisville Cardinals?
