Day four was eventful. We had one of the biggest comebacks in recent finals history, and we lost another team in an elimination game, while Colorado Mesa punched its ticket to the semifinals. We now head to day five, where two elimination games are on the docket and we cut the field down to four.

Day four is up next as we are now one team lighter in the field after our first elimination of the tournament. Tre Hobbs delivered an incredible performance for Delta State in a must-win situation, and eliminated North Georgia on Monday (May 29). We'll have another elimination game on our hands on Tuesday (May 30), when UC San Diego and Quincy face off.
Day three, and our first elimination game, are upon us on Memorial Day. We had another eventful day of first round match-ups, and now we get in to the part of the tournament where we are sending teams home. And unfortunately, today, we will be sending home a very good squad.

It was a *bonkers* regional championship weekend, and we have the championship game quick-hitters here for you.

We are hitting the final two days of competition in regional tournament play. Only two #1 seeds have been eliminated, and we have the bottom seed alive in four of the eight regional tournaments still.

We had a very eventful 2017 conference tournament season. A lot of surprise winners came through to play their way in to their respective regional tournament, a lot of bubble teams saw their bubbles burst as a result, but there wasn't much jockeying around for those who were already entrenched in a spot, save for one or two regions.

In the words of the great 21st century philosopher "The Joker".....Here. We. Go. The final week of the regular season, conference tournaments galore, and some bubble teams who are going to play their way in, play their way out, or just hope to get some help if they are already finished and on the bubble. Inside, you'll find your conference tournament central, with links to every single conference tournament in the country.

A couple more conference tournaments wrapped up, and a couple are currently underway as we speak as we inch closer and closer to the end of the regular season. Delta State, Winston-Salem State and Miles all earned conference tournament victories and therefore regional tournament nods, while the GAC and CACC are in the midst of their tournaments right now after preliminary play-in rounds. Not to mention, Tampa has wrapped up the Sunshine State Conference title and auto-bid, while Azusa Pacific claimed the PacWest crown and auto-bid.

Week two of conference tournament season is now upon us. Five conferences will at least begin their tournaments this weekend, with every other conference beginning their tournaments next week. In addition to that, we have what is essentially a conference championship series out west in our D2 Diamond Series of the Week. This is when things start getting real!

It was a banner weekend for the top teams, as the top four squads in last week's PerfectGame.org Division II Top 25 rankings went 12-0, setting themselves up for a huge finish as we head in to conference tournament play. We crowned two tournament champions this past weekend already, and we will have a plethora of more tournaments waging war this weekend.
