I am going to preview every single conference tournament one by one. Instead of what I initially started I am going to do them all on separate blog entries because I feel like this will give everyone a chance to discuss these conference tournaments. It will give them a home where everyone can join in and post their thoughts. Please comment.

Big South Conference Tournament:

Quarterfinals
#2 VMI (March 3rd)
#7 Coastal Carolina

#3 Liberty (March 3rd)
#6 Gardner Webb

#1 Radford (March 3rd)
#8 High Point

#4 UNC Asheville (March 3rd)
#5 Winthrop

Semifinals:
VMI/Coastal Carolina Winner (March 5th)
Liberty/Gardner Webb Winner

Radford/High Point (March 5th)
UNC Asheville/Winthrop

Championship: March 7th


Prediction: Radford has been playing the best basketball, which is kind of obvious since they have the #1 seed. VMI is the #2 seed and is pretty experienced. Remember VMI knocked off Kentucky in the Wildcats season opener, sending shockwaves around the entire country. It's crazy how much things have changed. Last year Winthrop played UNC Asheville for the conference championship, and this year they meet in round one. My money is on VMI to win the tourney with their high scoring style of play.

The Liberty/VMI winner will win the Big South Championship. I'm not big on Radford like that. It would be interesting to see the Curry brothers (Seth & Stephen) in the big dance but I'm a go with VMI. This team is a threat to shoot the three and the Holmes twins are playing some serious ball. They proven to be a team that can beat a team from a big conference however their defense is horrible. THE WINNER: VMI

VMI wins it because of their scoring but is out in the NCAA first round because of their defense.

I will go with VMI winning, but I also could see Liberty winning it too with Seth Curry.

I like VMI.  Liberty has an outside shot.  Next season Asheville gets Kenny George back and they return 9 of their top 10 players besides him.  Big South could be a 2 bidder next season.

I'll go with Seth Curry and Liberty. I'm excited to finally get a chance to see Curry! I can't wait to see this guy when he's a senior.
