Division II doesn't have any automatic qualifiers for its eight bids to the NCAA tournament, but that doesn't lessen the quest for a conference championship. Sometimes a late league playoff push can be the difference between making the Big Dance and being left home. Just ask Lake Erie last spring.

Conference tournaments have become so popular that this spring marks the first time that the East Coast Conference will give it a whirl. The ECC with sponsor a four-team bracket after determing its champion in the regular season for years.

Two other leagues have arisen this season - the Sunshine Athletic Conference and the South Atlantic Conference - after the Deep South Conference disbanded. They'll both have league championships at the conclusion of the regular season.

Below are the schedules and results for the 2014 conference tourneys, which will be kept updated during the course of the postseason with recaps and box scores. Check back to keep track of the action.
