2014 Southern Conference Tournament Predictions

Now who doesn't love Asheville, North Carolina? Not only is it a hell of a town, they love their hoops and with that, it is the home of the 2014 SoCon Tournament, which kicks off this Friday morning. It should be a good one, as it always is, with the defending champion Davidson Wildcats the slight favorite this weekend.  And with that, here is my 2014 Southern Conference Tournament predictions.

First Round - March 7th 
#9 Appalachian State vs. #8 Samford - ESPN3, 11:00
Pick: Appalachian State

#10 Furman vs. #7 Georgia Southern - ESPN3, 1:30
Pick: Georgia Southern

#11 The Citadel vs. #6 UNC Greensboro - ESPN3, 4:00
Pick: UNC Greensboro

Quarterfinals - March 8th
#9 Appalachian State vs. #1 Davidson - ESPN3, 12:00
Pick: Davidson

#5 Western Carolina vs. #4 Elon - ESPN3, 2:30
Pick: Elon

#7 Georgia Southern vs. #2 Chattanooga - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Georgia Southern

#6 UNC Greensboro vs. #3 Wofford - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: UNC Greensboro

Semifinals - March 9th
#4 Elon vs. #1 Davidson  - CSS, 6:00
The Phoenix can score with anybody in SoCon, and they'll get it done for the upset. 
Pick: Elon

#7 Georgia Southern vs. #6 UNC Greensboro  - CSS, 8:30
Pick: UNC Greensboro

Championship - March 10th
#6 UNC Greensboro vs. #4 Elon - ESPN2, 9:00
Bet you didn't see this showdown coming in the title, but while Greensboro will put up a surprising run to the title game, they do not have enough for Elon.
Pick: Elon
