It's crunch time in Championship Week, as we're down to the last two days of action. A whopping 15 Dance cards get punched in the next 32 hours - 10 today, the final 5 tomorrow - as conferences crown their tournament champs ahead of the announcement of the brackets Sunday night at 6pm (CBS - regarding whose selection show, USA Today's Rudy Martzke has some fine ideas). Here's the rundown, in chronological order for your viewing pleasure (conference tournament seedings in parentheses):

Saturday March 13
