March Madness is finally upon us, and later today, the 2014 NCAA Tournament bracket will officially be set. However, there's still some business to take care of before stepping into the big dance. Several teams are still vying for their conference's tournament championship, including a handful of major players in the Top 25.

After finishing off No. 21 Connecticut for the ACC title, the Louisville Cardinals will be able to relax tomorrow as they await their tournament seeding. The Cardinals dominated the first half of play in yesterday's final, outscoring the Huskies 37-23, and they were able to ride that momentum to the final buzzer. Montrezl Harrell came up big once again for Louisville with 22 points, 11 boards, and 3 blocks. Check out the gallery above for a look at his shoes.

From Las Vegas, No. 20 New Mexico upset No. 8 San Diego State in the Mountain West Conference final 64-58. Cameron Bairstow of the Lobos put in the bulk of the work in the paint with 17 points and 9 rebounds.

Around the country, No. 4 Arizona suffered a heartbreaking loss to UCLA in the Pac-12 championship, No. 6 Virginia advanced to the ACC finals over Pittsburgh, and more. Be sure to hit the jump for a full rundown if you're looking to get up to speed for your bracket predictions.
