There is a lot of college basketball coming your way in the next few weeks. March Madness isn't quite here just yet — first we've got to make our way through the conference tournaments. And there quite literally are too many games to make it onto traditional television.

Both the men and women's teams in Conference USA get their start on March 11, in Frisco, Texas, and both will see the opening-round matchups on ESPN+ . After that, things start to split up a bit, with the men's quarterfinals on the Stadium Network as well as Facebook, and the women on ESPN+ and Stadium.

The semis and finals then turn to CBS Sports Network for a more traditional place on television — but also in the streaming world, as CBSSN is available on most every major streaming service.

The bottom line is that you don't have to miss a single second of the CUSA basketball action. All you need is a decent internet connection and a forgiving boss.

Watch Conference USA College Basketball Tournament even if you're outside the United States

There's this thing about March Madness — and the conference tournaments leading up to it — that causes work to stop, and families to go ignored. (Not that either of those things are good, we suppose.) But what if you're outside the United States? How do you get your CUSA hoops on?

That's where a VPN comes in. That's short for Virtual Private Network, and it's a way to pipe all of your internet traffic through sort of "tunnel" that looks like it's coming from the United States (because it is), even though you're not physically there.

And there are sercurity reasons for using a VPN as well. But for our purposes here, it's all about location, location, location.
