Who do you predict to win each of the conference tournaments and what teams currently not on the bubble or expected to make the tournament have the best chance to pull off upsets and win their conference tournament? So there should be two answers for each, who you think will win and who is the dark horse team that can crash the party.
ACC: Duke or Maryland, no Dark Horse.
SEC: Kentucky or Vanderbilt, dark horse South Carolina (The SEC always has a sub-par team who catches fire, and Devan Downey is the type of guy who can catch fire and lead SC to the title).
Big Ten: Ohio State or Michigan St, Dark Horse Wisconsin
Big East: Syracuse or Pitt/WVU Dark Horse: USF (I love dominique Jones and want to see USF dancing)
Pac 10: California or Washington.
Big 12: Kansas or Kansas St. Dark Horse: Oklahoma State.
Im predicting Washington to win the pac 10 tournament and i think Arizona might be the dark horse team that can get hot and play spoiler.
ACC: Duke..dark horse: georgia tech: favors finaIIy proves why he is a top prospect
SEC: Kentucky..dark horse: fIorida
Big 10: Ohio State..dark horse: none
Big East: Syracuse..dark horse: Marquette
Pac 10: CaI...dark horse: Arizona
Big 12: Kansas...dark horse: texas

I feel bad for USC. They could have had a tournament caliber team this year but i think they lost a lot of their mojo when they announced they would not be playing in any tournaments. Before that announcement, they had won 8 games in a row including a blow out of tennessee, but ever since they have played flat.
Big 12- Kansas
Big 10- Ohio St.
Pac 10- Washington
Big East- West Virginia
My bad. Forgot about sanction. I like Arizona.
wasnt too hard to pick it this year
