Agree - conference tournaments for one-bid leagues are ridiculous.

In any sport.

I get that the minor basketball conferences get some change from ESPN for having them. But it's really not fair to teams that win regular season conference championships. Especially in leagues with balanced schedules. It also degrades the quality of the NCAA tournament when crappy teams get in because they happened to get hot or benefited from favorable match-ups for a three-game run. Or the best team lost a player for that week.

The Ivy resisted for a long time and was the last hold out in hoops, but they finally caved in 2017.
