2015 Big South Tournament Predictions

The Big South Tournament will look a little different this year because unlike in years past, the conference was not split into divisions after VMI left to return to the Southern Conference. That said, it seems like the action is always fun down in Conway near Myrtle Beach and that should be the same this year.

Here are my predictions for the 2015 Big South Tournament.

All games at HTC Center in Conway, SC

First Round - Wesnesday, March 4th
8 Presbyterian vs. 9 Longwood - 12,00
Pick: Longwood

7 Gardner-Webb vs. 10 Campbell - 2:30
Pick: Gardner-Webb

6 UNC Asheville vs. 11 Liberty - 6:00
Pick: UNC Asheville

Quarterfinals - Friday, March 6th
1 Charleston Southern vs. 9 Longwood - ESPN3, 12:00
Pick: Charleston Southern

4 Radford vs. 5 Winthrop - ESPN3, 2:30
Pick: Winthrop

2 High Point vs. 7 Gardner-Webb - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: High Point

3 Coastal Carolina vs. 6 UNC Asheville - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Coastal Carolina

Semifinals - Saturday, March 7th
1 Charleston Southern vs. 5 Winthrop - ESPN3, 12:00
The one time these two played, Winthrop won by 22 (albeit at home). I like the Eagles.
Pick: Winthrop

2 High Point vs. 3 Coastal Carolina - ESPN3, 2:00
Coastal will complete the season sweep of the Panthers
Pick: Coastal Carolina

Championship - Sunday, March 8th
3 Coastal Carolina vs. 5 Winthrop - ESPN2, 1:00
The Chanticleers do have the home-court advantage, but they have already lost to Winthrop at home this season. I think it will happen again on Sunday.
Pick: Winthrop
