2016 Ohio Valley Conference Tournament Predictions

Once again, the first team into the 2016 NCAA Tournament will be the victor of Music City Madness. The Ohio Valley Conference Tournament will kick off this Wednesday and will conclude on Saturday night, all taking place at the legendary Nashville Municipal Auditorium. The Belmont Bruins enter the tournament as the top seed as they aim to defend last year's championship but do note, the top seed hasn't won this tournament since 2013? Will they break the trend?

Here are my predictions for the 2016 OVC Championship.

First Round - Wednesday, March 2nd
5 Tennessee Tech vs. 8 Austin Peay - Nashville - OVCDN, 7:00
Pick: Tennessee Tech

6 Murray State vs. 7 Eastern Illinois - Nashville - OVCDN, 9:30
Pick: Murray State

Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 3rd
5 Tennessee Tech vs. 4 Tennessee State - Nashville - OVCDN, 7:00
Pick: Tennessee Tech

6 Murray State vs. 3 Morehead State - Nashville - OVCDN, 9:30
Pick: Morehead State

Semifinals - Friday, March 4th
5 Tennessee Tech vs. 1 Belmont - Nashville - ESPNU, 6:30
Pick: Belmont

3 Morehead State vs. 2 Tennessee-Martin - Nashville, ESPNU, 9:00
Pick: Morehead State

Championship - Saturday, March 5th
3 Morehead State vs. 1 Belmont - Nashville - ESPN2, 6:00
Once again, we will get an upset in the OVC final. These two split the regular season series but the superior defense of the Eagles will be the difference.
Pick: Morehead State
