2013 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament Predictions

Looking for an easy excuse to spend an extended weekend in the great town of Nashville? Why not check out the Ohio Valley Tournament at the Nashville Memorial Auditorium? Watch some good basketball at a low price, experience the night life, why not? I'm not sure why I am working as a de facto travel agent for the OVC but alas, here are my predictions for the 2013 edition of Music City Madness.

1st Round - March 6
#5 Morehead State vs. #8 UT-Martin (7:00)
Pick: Morehead State

#6 Southeast Missouri vs. #7 Eastern Illinois (9:00)
Pick: Southeast Missouri

Quarterfinals - March 7
#4 Tennessee State vs. #5 Morehead State (7:00)
Pick: Morehead State

#3 Eastern Kentucky vs. #6 Southeast Missouri (9:00)

Semifinals - March 8
#1 Belmont vs. #5 Morehead State (ESPNU, 7:00)
Pick: Belmont

#2 Murray State vs. #3 Eastern Kentucky (ESPN3, 9:00; ESPNU, 1:30 am)
Pick: Eastern Kentucky

Final - March 9
#1 Belmont vs. #3 Eastern Kentucky (ESPN2, 7:00)
Eastern Kentucky is a solid team but the Bruins have taken them out twice this year and I do not have much reasoning to expect something different in the third matchup.
Pick: Belmont
