The Southern Conference Basketball Tournament has officially started in the ExploreAsheville.com Arena at the U.S. Cellular Center. All weekend long college teams from across the southeast will battle it out for the championship title. On top of it all, the weather looks amazing for the weekend. Springtime will make it's first appearance with temperatures hovering in the low 60's.
