2013 Northeast Conference Tournament Predictions

The champion of the Northeast Conference always seems to be a pesky out come March Madness for the top teams and that should give you a good reason to keep an eye on the 2013 NEC Tournament this week and into next. And by the way, Ruby Tuesday is a solid restaurant so if they are reading this, maybe I can cop some free food or something. Sponsor plugs aside, here are my predictions for the 2013 NEC Tourney.

Quarterfinals - March 6
#1 Robert Morris vs. #8 St. Francis (PA) (7:00)
Pick: Robert Morris

#2 Wagner vs. #7 Central Connecticut (7:00)
Pick: Wagner

#3 LIU Brooklyn vs. #6 Qunnipiac (7:00)
Pick: LIU Brooklyn

#4 Bryant vs. #5 Mount St. Mary's (7:00)
Pick: Bryant

Semifinals - March 9
#1 Robert Morris vs. #4 Bryant (NEC Network, 12:00 or 2:30)
Pick: Bryant

#2 Wagner vs. #3 LIU Brooklyn (NEC Network, 12:00 or 2:30)
Pick: LIU Brooklyn

Final - March 12
#3 LIU Brooklyn vs. #4 Bryant (ESPN2, 7:00)
The Blackbirds may look to be in a good position here to get to the Tournament for the third straight year and by hosting the final, plus they beat Bryant in their one matchup. However, it was a tight one and I think the Bulldogs are very hungry for revenge.
Pick: Bryant
