Conference tournament time is here, and our college basketball picks are as important as ever before! Check out the teams that we think are going to be dancing with our NCAA basketball picks for the conference tourney finals and the rest of the big time games on the Wednesday night docket!

College Basketball Matchup: Connecticut Huskies vs. West Virginia Mountaineers
Date: Wednesday, March 7th, 12:00 ET
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
College Basketball Odds: Connecticut -2
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

Many think that the Huskies are set to go on a big time run, but we just don’t know if that is going to really be the case or not. Both of these teams look awfully similar on paper, and neither one is quite sure of its spot in the NCAA Tournament quite yet. The Huskies didn’t have to break a sweat yesterday, but we do think that Wednesday’s test is going to be a lot tougher. Back the Mountaineers.

NCAA Basketball Pick: West Virginia +2

College Basketball Matchup: Pittsburgh Panthers vs. Georgetown Hoyas
Date: Wednesday, March 7th, 2:00 ET
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
College Basketball Odds: Georgetown -5.5
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

The Hoyas are clearly the better of these two teams, but it is also just as clear that the Panthers are good enough to win games against anyone in this conference. It won’t necessarily be the prettiest game in the world, but we think that Georgetown is going to falter in a big time way. Motivation is a key factor here in the Big Apple, and U-Pitt has a lot more of it than the Hoyas do.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Pittsburgh +5.5

College Basketball Matchup: Seton Hall Pirates vs. Louisville Cardinals
Date: Wednesday, March 7th, 7:00 ET
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
College Basketball Odds: No Line
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

Here we go again with a story of motivation. Louisville hasn’t played that well of late, and we think that this is a team that has been playing over its head all season long. The Cards are in the dance for sure, but the same can’t be said about Seton Hall. Many think that the Pirates have to have this one to get into the tourney, and that’s exactly what we think is going to happen in what should be another mild upset at MSG.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Seton Hall Pirates

College Basketball Matchup: Robert Morris Colonials vs. Long Island Blackbirds
Date: Wednesday, March 7th, 7:00 ET
Location: Spiro Sports Center, New York, NY
College Basketball Odds: Pick ‘Em
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

The NEC is one of the high flying conferences in the land, but the big question here is whether Robert Morris is going to be able to slow the Blackbirds down. The Colonials are the one bunch that actually plays basketball on the defensive end of the court, and that has proven to be frustrating in this tournament for a number of teams. Robert Morris has the goods to pull off the slight upset, and we think that it will knock the Blackbirds off of their perch as the NEC champs.

College Basketball Matchup: Villanova Wildcats vs. South Florida Bulls
Date: Wednesday, March 7th, 9:00 ET
Location: Madison Square Garden, New York, NY
College Basketball Odds: No Line
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN, ESPN3.com

Villanova has been a team that has been undisciplined all season long, and this is the type of game that it is going to lose and lose badly when it loses its cool. The Wildcats will want to get out and run just as they did in the second half against Rutgers on Tuesday in their dominating effort. South Florida just won’t let that happen. The Bulls have to have this one to stay alive for the NCAA Tournament, and they’ll log win No. 20 on the campaign in one of their biggest wins ever on Wednesday.

NCAA Basketball Pick: South Florida Bulls

College Basketball Matchup: Weber State Wildcats vs. Montana Grizzlies
Date: Wednesday, March 7th, 9:00 ET
Location: Dahlberg Arena, Missoula, MT
College Basketball Odds: No Line
College Basketball TV Schedule: ESPN2, ESPN3.com

Montana has won 13 games in a row, but this could be a brutal finish to its season. Weber State lost in this building just a few weeks ago, but the way that the team runs up and down the court could prove to be problematic for the Grizzlies. Weber State has a veteran team that just doesn’t beat itself, and in the end, that is going to make the difference against a sometimes wild Montana side.

NCAA Basketball Pick: Weber State Wildcats
