MID MAJORS MADNESS


By Marc Lawrence — With the March Madness focus on the Power Five conferences, it’s time to cast a close eye on the Mid Major conferences. ESPN+, the streaming service, will scale down the Power Five action over the next seven days in order to get a good read on some high-quality mid-majors before Championship Week begins. On the slate is an intriguing battle in the Southern Conference, three Atlantic 10 matchups and a clash of styles in the Atlantic Sun. Included will be Wednesday night’s showdown between Illinois State and Northern Iowa. The Panthers might be the best team in the Missouri Valley Conference, but if there’s one program that is capable of playing spoiler in the league tournament, it’s the Ramblers who have two holdovers from the 2018 Final Four squad. Read more on this game and the other intriguing Mid Major matchups this week here.
