2016 Atlantic Sun Tournament Predictions

We are not quite in March just yet but once we crack March 1, the conference tournaments will commence. And as per usual, one of the very first conferences to have their tournaments is the Atlantic Sun as they will kick off on Monday night.

Last year's tournament victor, the Ospreys of North Florida, are favored to win it again but could we see an upset champion? Here are my predictions.

Quarterfinals - Tuesday, March 1st
1 North Florida vs. 8 USC Upstate - Jacksonville - ESPN3, 7:30
Pick: North Florida

4 FGCU vs. 5 Kennesaw State - Fort Myers - ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: FGCU

3 Jacksonville vs. 6 Lipscomb - Jacksonville - ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: Jacksonville

2 NJIT vs. 7 Stetson - Newark - ESPN3, 7:30
Pick: NJIT

Semifinals - Thursday, March 3rd
1 North Florida vs. 4 FGCU - Jacksonville - ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: North Florida

2 NJIT vs. 3 Jacksonville - Newark - ESPN3, 7:00
Pick: NJIT

Final - Sunday, March 6th
1 North Florida vs. 2 NJIT - Jacksonville - ESPN2, 7:00
You know I would love to pick the Highlanders, for many reasons. First, they're a Jersey team. Second, they share the nickname of my high school and third, they have made such great progress over the years. But they just aren't as good as the Ospreys and on the road, they'll fall short.
Pick: North Florida
