2016 Big Sky Tournament Predictions

This year's Big Sky Tournament will mark the first time that all teams will be participating in the conference tournament and it is also the first time it will be held at a neutral site. It all will kick off on Tuesday from the "Biggest Little City in the World" and we know that folks are excited already about that.

Which team will be getting the conference's automatic bid to the 2016 NCAA Tournament? Here are my exclusive predictions.

First Round - Tuesday, March 8th
8 Portland State vs. 9 Northern Colorado - WatchBigSky.com, 3:00
Pick: Portland State

North Dakota vs. 12 Southern Utah - WatchBigSky.com, 5:30
Pick: North Dakota

Montana State vs. 10 Sacramento State- WatchBigSky.com, 8:30
Pick: Montana State

Eastern Washington vs. 11 Northern Arizona - WatchBigSky.com, 11:00
Pick: Eastern Washington

Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 10th
1 Weber State vs. 8 Portland State - WatchBigSky.com, 3:00
Pick: Weber State

4 Idaho State vs. 5 North Dakota - WatchBigSky.com, 5:30
Pick: North Dakota

2 Montana vs. 7 Montana State - WatchBigSky.com, 8:30
Pick: Montana

3 Idaho vs. 6 Eastern Washington - WatchBigSky.com, 11:00
Pick: Idaho

Semifinals - Friday, March 11th
1 Weber State vs. 5 North Dakota - WatchBigSky.com, 8:30
Pick: North Dakota

2 Montana vs. 3 Idaho - WatchBigSky.com, 11:00
Pick: Idaho

Championship - Saturday, March 12th
3 Idaho vs. 5 North Dakota - ESPNU, 8:45
These two played close twice this season but I think it will be the defense of the Vandals that will be the difference.
Pick: Idaho
