2014 Big West Tournament Predictions

This is the 14th year the Big West Tournament has been held in Anaheim, California, although you wonder why the conference doesn't pull an Angels and put Log Angeles as the tournament location. Anyways, silly rants aside, as I am doing predictions for each and every conference tournament once again, here are my predictions for the 2014 Big West Tournament.

Quarterfinals - March 13th
#7 Cal Poly vs. #2 UC Santa Barbara - Prime Ticket, 3:00
Pick: UC Santa Barbara

#6 Cal State Fullerton vs. #3 Long Beach State - Prime Ticket, 5:30
Pick: Cal State Fullerton

#8 UC Riverside vs. #1 UC Irvine - Prime Ticket, 9:00
Pick: UC Irvine

#5 Cal State Northridge vs. #4 Hawaii - Prime Ticket, 11:30
Pick: Hawaii

Semifinals - March 14th
#6 Cal State Fullerton vs. #1 UC Irvine - ESPN3, 9:30
Pick: UC Irvine

#4 Hawaii vs. #2 UC Santa Barbara - ESPNU, 12:00
Pick: UC Santa Barbara

Championship - March 15th
#2 UC Santa Barbara vs. #1 UC Irvine - ESPN2, 10:30
Find me a better nickname matchup this tournament than the Gauchos and the Anteaters, I dare you.  These two are clearly the best teams in conference so it would be natural to meet for a third time, having split their first two meetings. But a name you are going to be hearing much of is UCSB center Alan Williams, and he will be the difference.
Pick: UC Santa Barbara
