It the time of year when every commercial promotion seems to revolve around a bracket. That of course, is because of the energy in the air that is March Madness. Love basketball or not, workplaces and classrooms alike have plenty of fun and competition around picking the games.

Before the 'madness' can begin, conference championships need to take place--and guaranteed winners need to be awarded their tournament placements. That includes the Big Sky Conference (home to regional favorites like Eastern Washington University and the University of Idaho) who will be sending a men's and women's team to the big dance!

The Big Sky Conference is no stranger to downtown Boise or Idaho Central Arena.

In fact, you may recall a year ago the Big Sky tournament in downtown Boise made all of the major highlights on ESPN for this famous buzzer beater!

This Former Nampa Basketball Star is ESPN's Darling

It's not often that you see Sports Center re-run a single play as often as they did last night. The good folks at ESPN could not get enough of the dominating performance by one particular Texas Tech player who left it all on the court. His team defeated Baylor-- the defending National Champion and the only remaining undefeated team in the country this season.
Plot twist, this player has some serious Idaho ties-- with NO offers out of High School, Adonis Arms played in Nampa at Northwest Nazarene University where he gained the skill set and the reputation to make his way up to the big time stage.
