2015 WAC Tournament Predictions

The fourth and final tournament to be held in Las Vegas Paradise, Nevada is that of the Western Athletic Conference, which kicks off tomorrow. The easy tournament favorite has to be the Aggies of New Mexico State as they lost only once during conference play and won the regular season crown by five games over Grand Canyon and UMKC. They are also the three-time defending champs of the tournament. That said, we have seen crazier things happen in these conference tournaments. Thus, here are my predictions.

All games held at Orleans Arena in Paradise, NV

Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 12th
4 Cal State Bakersfield vs. 5 Utah Valley - 5:30
Pick: Utah Valley

2 UMKC vs. 7 Texas Pan-American - 9:00
Pick: UMKC

3 Seattle vs. 6 Chicago State - 11:30
Pick: Chicago State

Semifinals - Friday, March 13th
1 New Mexico State vs. 5 Utah Valley - 9:00
Pick: New Mexico State

2 UMKC vs. 6 Chicago State - 11:30
Pick: Chicago State

Championship - Saturday, March 14th
1 New Mexico State vs. 6 Chicago State - ESPNU, 11:00
We already know that New Mexico State is clearly the top team in the conference and I just do not see anybody taking them out on a neutral floor in this tournament.
Pick: New Mexico State
