2015 Southern Conference Tournament Predictions

The 2015 Southern Conference Championship kicks off this Friday in Asheville. The conference has been in a little bit of upheaval since last year's tournament as four teams have left the conference (Appalachian State, Davidson, Elon and George Southern) while three programs have joined the conference (East Tennessee State, Mercer and VMI). Defending champion Wofford is the favorite but unlike last year when they pulled the upset as the third seed, this year they are the top seed. Will they pull off the title or will somebody like a Chattanooga or somebody else get to the NCAA's?

Here are my 2015 SoCon Tournament predictions.

All games held at U.S. Cellular Center in Asheville.

First Round - Friday, March 6th
8 UNC Greensboro vs. 9 Samford - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: UNC Greensboro

7 The Citadel vs. 10 Furman - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Furman

Quarterfinals - Saturday, March 7th
1 Wofford vs. 8 UNC Greensboro - ESPN3, 12:00
Pick: Wofford

4 Western Carolina vs. 5 East Tennessee State - ESPN3, 2:30
Pick: East Tennessee State

2 Chattanooga vs. 10 Furman - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Chattanooga

3 Mercer vs. 6 VMI - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Mercer

Semifinals - Sunday, March 8th
1 Wofford vs. 5 East Tennessee - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Wofford

2 Chattanooga vs. 3 Mercer - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Mercer

Championship - Monday, March 9th
1 Wofford vs. 3 Mercer - ESPN2, 7:00
Neither game was all that easy for the Terriers but they won both contests. Wofford certainly is the better team and I think they will show it this week.
Pick: Wofford
