I'm assuming we're talking about the National Basketball Association here. I could list the names of the NCAA conferences as well, but that would take a little longer than I want to spend. Also, the names of the Conferences is pretty easy: Eastern Conference and Western Conference. For the sake of completeness, I'm assuming that the question refers to the names of the Divisions within those Conferences. The NBA is arranged as follows: EASTERN CONFERENCE - Atlantic Division, Central Division, Southeast Division WESTERN CONFERENCE - Northwest Division, Pacific Division, Southwest Division

In college sports, the SEC is the Southeastern Conference. It is one of the NCAA Division I conferences.
It depends on the sport you are talking about and the division. A conference like the Missouri Valley Conference that could be considered a major basketball conference, wouldn't be considered one in football. A basketball mid-major like the Colonial Athletic Association is a major football conference, but in FCS (former D1AA) where they're the FCS version of say the SEC.
A division is a group of teams that play each other. Such as the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC), Southeastern Conference (SEC), etc.
