2013 America East Tournament Predictions

It always is a fun time at the America East Basketball Tournament, particularly because the first two rounds take place just outside the great city of Albany (let's not kid ourselves, Albany sucks). This year's tournament probably would have been better had Boston been in it but since BU is heading to the Patriot League, the conference is preventing them from playing in the tournament. And on that note, here are my predictions.

Quarterfinals - March 9
#2 Vermont vs. #7 New Hampshire (ESPN3, 12:00)
Pick: Vermont

#3 Hartford vs. #6 UMBC (ESPN3, 2:00)
Pick: Hartford

#1 Stony Brook vs. #8 Binghamton (ESPN3, 6:00)
Pick: Stony Brook

#4 Albany vs. #5 Maine (ESPN3, 8:00)
Pick: Albany

Semifinals - March 10
#2 Vermont vs. #3 Hartford (ESPN3, 5:00)
Pick: Hartford

#1 Stony Brook vs. #4 Albany (ESPN3, 7:00)
Pick: Stony Brook

Final - March 6
#1 Stony Brook vs. #3 Hartford
The Sea Wolves have been close seemingly for years and will finally break through.
Pick: Stony Brook
