Conference Carolinas Tournament may be coming to Wilson Gym

Here's a quick heads-up for Barton College basketball fans. The Conference Carolinas has changed the format for both the men's and women's basketball tournaments.

Instead of having the top five regular-season finishers get a bye while the bottom six teams go at it in the first round, the league has opted to allow just the top eight teams into the tournament.

Furthermore, the tournament will not be held at a common site but instead on the floor of the higher seed for each round. The down side to this is that the men's and women's championships are now, probably, split up.

The men's and women's tournaments begin on March 3 with the semifinals scheduled for March 6 and the finals set for March 8.

This is potentially good news for both Barton squads, which still have outside shots to win their respective conference races. Wilson Gym could be the site of either tournament final — or both.

Just a reminder that a week from Saturday on March 1, the Bulldogs will host conference leader Mount Olive at noon in a nationally televised game on CSTV and FSN (Fox Sports Network) South.
