Conference Tournament Previews: Southern

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: March 6th
#4 Appalachian State vs. #5 Georgia Southern
#3 Charleson vs. #6 UNC-Greensboro
#4 Wofford vs. #5 Elon
#3 Samford vs. #6 Furman

Quarterfinals: March 7
#4/5 vs. #1 Davidson
#3/6 vs. #2 Western Carolina
#4/5 vs. #1 Chattanooga
#3/6 vs. #2 Citadel

Semifinals: March 8

Championship: March 9


Prediction: Just like Siena in the MAAC, Davidson is huge favorites in the Southern Conference Tournament. Stephen Curry can find his touch at any moment and light any of his opponents in this tournament up. Beware though, both the College of Charleson and The Citadel have wins over Davidson this year. Those two losses by the Wildcats prove that it can be done. I think Davidson knows how important this tournament is and gets the job done.
