2016 MEAC Tournament Predictions

Going by the RPI, the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference is the worst college basketball conference in the country. So they have got that going for them as their conference tournament will kick on Monday night in the iconic Norfolk Scope. Last year's tournament was a total mess as it concluded with the sixth seed Hampton taking out the fifth seed Delaware State in the championship. Will we see some similar shenanigans this year?

Here are my predictions for the 2016 MEAC Tournament.
First Round - Monday, March 7th
5 Savannah State vs. 12 Delaware State - Norfolk - ESPN3, 6:30
Pick: Savannah State

6 North Carolina A&T vs. 11 Coppin State - Norfolk - ESPN3, 9:00
Pick: Coppin State

Tuesday, March 8th
8 Maryland Eastern Shore vs. 9 Morgan State - Norfolk - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Maryland Eastern Shore

7 North Carolina Central vs. 10 Howard - Norfolk - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Howard

Quarterfinals - Wednesday, March 9th
1 Hampton vs. 8 Maryland Eastern Shore - Norfolk - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Hampton

2 Norfolk State vs. 10 Howard - Norfolk - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Howard

Thursday, March 10th
3 South Carolina State vs. 11 Coppin State - Norfolk - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Coppin State

4 Bethune-Cookman vs. 5 Savannah State - Norfolk - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Bethune-Cookman

Semifinals - Friday, March 11th
1 Hampton vs. 4 Bethune-Cookman - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Bethune-Cookman

10 Howard vs. 11 Coppin State - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Howard

Championship - Saturday, March 12th
4 Bethune-Cookman vs. 10 Howard - ESPN2, 1:00
Howard did beat the Wildcats this season but can they do it again on a neutral court? I'm not sold.
Pick: Bethune-Cookman
