NCAA Womens Basketball: SEC Conference Tournament-South Carolina vs Georgia Dawson Powers-USA TODAY Sports

For the true basketball fan, the task of March Madness is a daunting one—you already have too many games going on at once. If you start to factor in the women’s tournament as well, make a trip to Target and get another TV, because you are going to need it.

The men are up in Indianapolis and the women are down in San Antonio. The NCAA, true to its form of the most useless institution in modern memory, made sure to land itself in hot water again by refusing to provide similar workout situations and swag bags for the men’s and women’s players. Try and take a guess which gender got the short end of the stick.

That said, the best thing to do to help rectify the issue is watch the women’s tournament, because these teams are very good. The Gonzaga Bulldogs don’t tip off until Monday afternoon.

Here is the schedule for today. All times are PT and all games can be streamed at WatchESPN.
