2016 WAC Tournament Predictions

The final conference tournament to kick off from Sin City is that of the Western Athletic Conference as they will kick off their tournament tomorrow evening from arguably the greatest casino in Vegas, The Orleans. The Aggies of New Mexico State have dominated the conference in recent years as they have won four in a row and five of their last six, and they are the favorite this weekend. But will somebody else have something to say about it and get that at-large bid to the 2016 NCAA Tournament?

It's time for my predictions for the 2016 WAC Tournament.

Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 10th
4 Utah Valley vs. 5 UMKC - WAC Digital Network, 5:00
Pick: UMKC

2 Cal State Bakersfield vs. 7 Chicago State - WACDN, 7:30
Pick: Cal State Bakersfield

3 Seattle vs. 6 Texas-Rio Grande Valley - WACDN, 10:00
Pick: Seattle

Semifinals - Friday, March 11th
1 New Mexico State vs. 5 UMKC - WACDN, 9:00
Pick: New Mexico State

2 Cal State Bakersfield vs. 3 Seattle - WACDN, 11:00
Pick: Cal State Bakersfield

Championship - Saturday, March 12th
1 New Mexico State vs. 2 Cal State Bakersfield - WAC, ESPNU, 11:00
The Roadrunners are really the only team with a chance to take down New Mexico State but they did get swept by them this season. The Aggies' streak will continue.
Pick: New Mexico State
