Therefore, here are my 2013 WAC Tournament Predictions.

1st Round - March 12
#8 San Jose State vs. #9 UTSA (11:30)
Pick: San Jose State

#7 Texas State vs. #10 Seattle (9:00)
Pick: Texas State

Quarterfinals - March 14
#1 Louisiana Tech vs. #8 San Jose State (9:00)
Pick: Louisiana Tech

#4 Texas-Arlington vs. #5 Utah State (11:30)
Pick: Utah State

#3 New Mexico State vs. #6 Idaho (3:00)
Pick: New Mexico State

#2 Denver vs. #7 Texas State (5:30)
Pick: Denver

Semifinals - March 15
#1 Louisiana Tech vs. #5 Utah State (11:30)
Pick: Louisiana Tech

#2 Denver vs. #3 New Mexico State (9:00)
Pick: Denver

Final - March 16
#1 Louisiana Tech vs. #2 Denver (ESPNU, 11:00)
This could be fun because Denver is fantastic on defense and Tech can put the ball in the hoop very well. However, Denver's awful offense will prevent them from the NCAA's.
Pick: Louisiana Tech
