2014 America East Tournament Predictions

The 2014 America East Championship kicks off this Saturday in Guiderland, New York at the University of Albany. Last year's tournament ended up with an upset champion with the fourth-seeded Albany Great Danes winning it all, becoming the lowest seed to ever win a conference tournament that, thanks to its nature of the highest remaining seed hosting the championship game, is generally dominated by the top two seeds. Will see an upset like what we saw last year, this year?

Here are my 2014 America East Championship predictions.

Quarterfinals - March 8th
#8 New Hampshire vs. #1 Vermont - ESPN3, 12:00
Pick: Vermont

#5 UMBC vs. #4 Albany - ESPN3, 2:30
Pick: Albany

#7 Maine vs. #2 Stony Brook - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Stony Brook

#6 Binghamton vs. #3 Hartford - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Hartford

Semifinals - March 9th
#4 Albany vs. #1 Vermont - ESPN3, 5:00
Pick: Vermont

#3 Hartford vs. #2 Stony Brook - ESPN3, 7:30
Pick: Stony Brook

Championship - March 15th
#2 Stony Brook vs. #1 Vermont - ESPN2, 11:30
There is nothing America loves more than chalk, but I think we will get pure chalk this tournament. While these clubs split their season series, Vermont smoked Seawolves at Patrick Gym while Stony Brook won a nailbiter at Pritchard Gymnasium. Give me the Catamounts.
Pick: Vermont
