Conf. games in early NCAA rounds?
As expected, the NCAA made a change Thursday, in an attempt to more accurately seed the field for its 68-team tournament. The move allows some conference teams to face each other as early as the round of 32; in the past they had to wait until the regional final (unless a league got nine or more teams into the field). Of course, restrictions remain -- e.g. teams that have played three times during the season still must wait until the Elite Eight for a rematch. Should the NCAA open things up further?
