We all missed Dick Vitale's voice during Championship Week. But the beloved broadcaster is still sharing his thoughts and enthusiasm in a different way via his Twitter account.

After a wild week of conference games, Vitale revealed his three biggest winners of the past seven days. Pointing out the performances of Texas A&M, Virginia Tech and the Indiana Hoosiers.

"Biggest winners from Championship Week among power conferences," Dickie V wrote on his patented whiteboard. "Texas A&M, Indiana and Virginia Tech. They are now going to dance baby!"

The Aggies began came into Champ Week as one of Joe Lundardi's "Next 4 Out," but quickly changed their fortunes with some outstanding play in the SEC Tournament. A&M first burst Florida's bubble before shocking top-seeded Auburn and Arkansas in the semifinal.

Now in the conference championship game, Texas A&M has put themselves in position to be one of the "Last 4 In."

Meanwhile Virginia Tech captured their first ACC Tournament title with a huge upset of the Duke Blue Devils; winning four games in as many days to punch their ticket to March Madness. Hunter Cattoor led the way in the final, scoring 31 points on 7-9 from deep.

And even though Indiana fell to Iowa on a last second prayer from Jordan Bohannon, the Hoosiers accomplished some great things in the Big Ten tourney. And that was enough to get a shoutout from the legendary Dick Vitale.

We'll learn the fates of all three on what should be an exciting Selection Sunday.
