2013 Big Sky Tournament Predictions

Not going to lie, but I like the format of the Big Sky conference. Only seven out of eleven teams make the tournament, the tournament is reseeded in the second round, which is the semis, and the entire tourney is played at the host of the regular season champ, which makes sense for a one-bid league. That does give Montana a major advantage but don't count out Weber State or could somebody else make a run out of nowhere? Here are my predictions.

Quarterfinals - March 14
#2 Weber State vs. #7 NAU (5:00)
Pick: Weber State

#3 North Dakota vs. #6 Southern Utah (7:30)
Pick: Southern Utah

#4 Montana State vs. #5 Northern Colorado (10:00)
Pick: North Colorado

Semifinals - March 15
#2 Weber State vs. #5 Northern Colorado (7:30)
Pick: Weber State

#1 Montana vs. #6 Southern Utah (10:00)
Pick: Montana

Final - March 16
#1 Montana vs. #2 Weber State (ESPNU, 9:00)
It is weird but Weber State statistically has both a stronger offense and defense. Plus, they beat the Grizzlies by a hefty margin the last time they played. Gimme the Wildcats.
Pick: Weber State
