2016 Southland Tournament Predictions

We are a big fan of Katy, Texas and for the ninth straight year, it will host the Southland Tournament at the Merrell Center. All eyes this year, and seemingly most years, are on the Lumberjacks of Stephen F. Austin after they dominated conference this year in winning all 18 of their Southland Conference games. It was quite a feat, but the Islanders of Texas A&M-Corpus Christi may have something to say about them those two more victories they'll need to get to the Big Dance.

It's time for my exclusive predictions for the 2016 Southland Tournament.

First Round - Wednesday, March 9th
5 SE Louisiana vs. 8 New Orleans - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: New Orleans

6 McNeese State vs. 7 Nicholls State - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Nicholls State

Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 10th
4 Houston Baptist vs. 8 New Orleans - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Houston Baptist

3 Sam Houston State vs. 7 Nicholls State - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Sam Houston State

Semifinals - Friday, March 11th
1 Stephen F. Austin vs. 4 Houston Baptist - ESPN3, 6:00
Pick: Stephen F. Austin

2 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi vs. 3 Sam Houston State - ESPN3, 8:30
Pick: Texas A&M-Corpus Christi

Championship - Saturday, March 12th
1 Stephen F. Austin vs. 2 Texas A&M-Corpus Christi - ESPN2, 9:30
These two may just be bound to play each other but unfortunately, Katy will not be upset city on Saturday night.
Pick: Stephen F. Austin
