2015 Sun Belt Tournament Predictions

The Sun Belt Tournament will be in New Orleans this week for the first time since 2002 and for the second straight year, the Panthers of Georgia State sit as the top seed and the favorite. However, they fell in the championship game to Elfrid Payton and Louisiana-Lafayette last year. Will they be upset again, with Georgia Southern, Louisiana-Monroe and Lafayette once again in the mix? Or will they get to their first tournament since 2001?

Here is my predictions for the 2015 Sun Belt Tournament.

All games held at Lakefront Arena in New Orleans

First Round - Thursday, March 12th
5 Texas-Arlington vs. 8 Texas State - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Texas-Arlington

6 South Alabama vs. 7 UALR - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: UALR

Quarterfinals - Friday, March 13th
4 Louisiana-Lafayette vs. 5 Texas-Arlington - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Louisiana-Lafayette

3 Louisiana-Monroe vs. 7 UALR - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Louisiana-Monroe

Semifinals - Saturday, March 14th
1 Georgia State vs. 4 Louisiana-Lafayette - ESPN3, 2:00
These two may just be the top teams in the Belt but I think this is the time for Georgia State to exact their revenge.
Pick: Georgia State

2 Georgia Southern vs. 3 Louisiana-Monroe - ESPN3, 5:30
Pick: Louisiana-Monroe

Championship - Sunday, March 15th
1 Georgia State vs. 3 Louisiana-Monroe - ESPN2, 12:00
Of the top four teams in the conference, I think Georgia State would be the most pleased with facing the Warhawks. They'll easily.
Pick: Georgia State
