2015 Summit League Tournament Predictions

If you are in the Sioux Falls area this weekend, you will definitely want to check out the 2015 Summit League Tournament. After last year's tournament featured only seven teams, the addition of Oral Roberts, who left the conference in 2012 for the Southland Conference, brings the conference back to eight. The two conference favorites this year, North Dakota State and South Dakota State, have combined to win the last two conference tournaments but could we see somebody pull the upset this year?

Here are my predictions for the 2015 Summit League Tournament.

Quarterfinals - Saturday, March 7th
1 South Dakota State vs. 8 Western Illinois - Midco Sports Network/ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: South Dakota State

2 North Dakota State vs. 7 Denver - Midco Sports Network/ESPN3, 9:30
Pick:  North Dakota

Sunday, March 8th
4 IPFW vs. 5 South Dakota - Midco Sports Network/ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: IPFW

3 Oral Roberts vs. 6 IUPUI - Midco Sports Network/ESPN3, 9:30
Pick: Oral Roberts

Semifinals - Monday, March 9th
1 South Dakota State vs. 4 IPFW - Midco Sports Network/ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: IPFW

2 North Dakota State vs. 3 Oral Roberts - Midco Sports Network/ESPN3, 9:30
Pick: North Dakota State

Championship - Tuesday, March 10th
2 North Dakota vs. 4 IPFW - ESPN2, 9:00
Can an underrated Mastodons club pull the upset and get to their first ever NCAA Tournament? I say yes behind a solid offense.
Pick: IPFW
