2014 Big South Tournament Predictions

If you are in the Myrtle Beach area this week, you might want to check out the Big South Tournament, being held in Conway on the campus of Coastal Carolina. It kicks off this Wednesday night and while the hosts, the Chanticleers, are thought to be very much in the mix to get to the NCAA's, there also may not be a clear favorite to win the tournament. You know, just the way college basketball be, eh?

Here are my 2014 Big South Championship predictions.

First Round - March 5th
#5N Liberty vs. #4S Winthrop - Big South Network, 12:00
Pick: Winthrop

#6S Presbyterian vs. #3N Radford - Big South Network, 2:00
Pick: Radford

#5S Charleston Southern vs. #4N Campbell - Bis South Network, 6:00
Pick: Charleston Southern

#6N Longwood vs. #3S Gardner-Webb - Big South Network, 8:00
Pick: Gardner-Webb

Quarterfinals - March 7th
#4S Winthrop vs. #1N High Point - ESPN3, 12:00
Pick: Winthrop

#3N Radford vs. #2 UNC Asheville - ESPN3, 2:00
Pick: Radford

#5S Charleston Southern vs. #1S Coastal Carolina - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Coastal Carolina

#3S Gardner-Webb vs. #2N VMI - ESPN3, 8:00
Pick: VMI

Semifinals - March 8th
#4S Winthrop vs. #3N Radford - ESPN3, 12:00
Pick: Radford

#2N VMI vs. #1S Coastal Carolina - ESPN3, 2:00
Pick: Coastal Carolina

Championship - March 9th
#3N Radford vs. #1S Coastal Carolina - ESPN2, 12:00
These two did not meet in the regular season but with the homecourt advantage and the much stronger defense, I like the Chanticleers to get to their first NCAA Tournament since 1993.
Pick: Coastal Carolina
