2015 Big Sky Tournament Predictions

The Big Sky Conference kicks off their conference tomorrow in Missoula and given that the conference tournament will be held in Missoula, thanks to Montana winning the regular season title, gives Montana a significant advantage this weekend. After all, every top seed since 2010 has won the conference tournament and thus gotten the conference's automatic to the NCAA Tournament. Will we see the same this week?

Here are my 2015 Big Sky Tournament predictions.

All games held at the Dahlberg Center in Missoula

Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 12th
2 Eastern Washington vs. 7 Idaho - 1:00
Pick: Eastern Washington

3 Sacramento State vs. 6 Portland State - 3:30
Pick: Portland State

4 Northern Arizona vs. 5 Northern Colorado - 7:30
Pick: Northern Arizona

1 Montana vs. 8 Weber State - 10:00
Pick: Montana

Semifinals - Friday, March 13th
2 Eastern Washington vs. 6 Portland State - 7:30
Pick: Eastern Washington

1 Montana vs. 4 Northern Arizona - 10:00
Pick: Montana

Championship - Saturday, March 14th
1 Montana vs. 2 Eastern Washington - ESPNU, 9:00
Will see the trend of the top seed winning the conference crown continue? I say no. I think the Eagles are the better team and they already have the confidence of winning in Missoula.
Pick: Eastern Washington
