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.
Missouri Valley Conference Tournament:
#8 Drake vs. #9 Indiana State (March 5)
#7 Wichita State vs. #10 Missouri State (March 5)
#1 Northern iowa vs. Drake/Indiana State (March 6)
#4 Bradley vs. Southern Illinois (March 6)
#2 Creighton vs. Wichita State/Missouri State (March 6)
#3 Illinois State vs. #6 Evansville
Semifinals: March 7
Championship: March 8
Prediction: Creighton is the two seed because they lost out on a tiebreaker with Northern Iowa, but there's no doubt that the Bluejays are the true favorites. Creighton is one of the hottest teams in the country and may not even need to win the conference tournament to get in. I expect them to keep rolling but I do say watch out for Evansville . If there's one thing to know about the Missouri Valley it's this: Arch Madness is almost as good as March Madness. Make sure to tune in!
