Conference Tournament Previews: Sun Belt

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.

First Round

#9 Florida International at #8 Louisiana-Lafayette (March 4th)
#13 Florida Atlantic at #4 North Texas (March 4th)
#12 Arkansas State at #5 Middle Tennessee (March 5th)
#11 New Orleans at # #6 South Alabama (March 5th)
#10 Louisiana-Monroe at #7 Denver (March 5th)

Quarterfinals:
Florida International/La-Lafayette vs. #1 Western Kentucky
Florida Atlantic/North Texas vs. Arkansas State/Middle Tennessee
New Orleans/So. Alabama vs. #2 Arkansas Little-Rock
Lou-Mon/Denver vs. #3 Troy

Semifinals: March 9th

Championship: March 10th

Prediction: Western Kentucky is the favorite, as shown by their #1 seed. The Hilltoppers lost some key players off of last season's NCAA Tournament Cinderella squad but have reloaded. The key is that all these teams are all in the same boat. Depite their dominance WKU still has to win the conference tournament to get in, as does everyone else. This is going to be one of the best small tourneys to watch.

First Round: 5 out of 5 (It's never easy picking that 8 vs. 9 game)

Beer - i agree with your preview except in the final where I like Western to avenge the regular season loss and win over the Trojans in a close one.

Go Tops!!!

I like Western Kentucky to win as well. I know they lost a few players from last year, but I think WKU could win a game in the NCAA tournament.

WKU is my choice to win it.  I wouldn't mind seeing both Western and Ark-LR in the tourney but I know it won't happen.

I will go with Western Kentucky. They seem to be the best of this bunch.

I will go with Western Kentucky to win it all.  I believe that Arkansas Little-Rock could have given them a run for their money if they hadn't just kicked their leading scorer off the team.

thought that W. Kentucky was good but the #1 showed up under the 8 / 9 game

Fixed it. Sorry

I like the previews by conference.  Gives you a look into what people think about the smaller leagues.  I'm glad we have teams other than the big 6.

Thanks!
