2013 Big South Tournament Predictions

This is exciting, the Big South Tournament this year will be held in a brand new venue, the HTC Center on the campus of Coastal Carolina. Not only that, it's darn close to Myrtle Beach, which I hear is a great place. And on that note, since I have a goal of doing conference tournament previews because I am nuts, here are my predictions for the 2013 Big South Basketball Tournament.

1st Round - March 5
South #4 Coastal Carolina vs. North #5 Liberty (12:00)
Pick: Coastal Carolina

North #3 Campbell vs. South #6 Presbyterian (2:00)
Pick: Campbell

North #4 Radford vs. South #5 Winthrop (6:00)
Pick: Winthrop

South #3 UNC-Asheville vs. North #6 Longwood (8:00)
Pick: UNC-Asheville

Quarterfinals - March 7
North #1 High Point vs. South #4 Coastal Carolina (12:00)
Pick: High Point

South #2 Gardner-Webb vs. North #3 Campbell (2:00)
Pick: Campbell

South #1 Charleston-Southern vs. South #5 Winthrop (6:00)
Pick: Winthrop

North #2 VMI vs. #3 UNC-Asheville (8:00)
Pick: VMI

Semifinals - March 9
North #1 High Point vs. North #3 Campbell (ESPN3, 12:00)
Pick: Campbell

North #2 VMI vs. South #5 Winthrop (ESPN3, 2:00)
Pick: VMI

Final - March 10
North #2 VMI vs. North #3 Campbell (ESPN2, 12:00)
The last time the Keydets made the NCAA Tournament was all the way back when they made the Sweet Sixteen in 1977. Their excellent offense will carry them to the title.
Pick: VMI
