As we draw closer to March Madness, I can’t help but to analyze each conference for teams either worth an At-large bid or one whom is on the bubble. Here, I examine the Big Sky Conference, which according to KenPom is the 28th best conference. The best thing about this conference is probably that NBA superstar Damian Lilliard came out of it. Lilliard played for the Weber St. Wildcats, whom happen to be the best team the conference.
Best Teams: Weber St. Wildcats, Montana Grizzlies, Eastern Washington Eagles

Note: Last year I was all about the Big Sky conference, as the Eastern Washington Eagles and Montana Grizzlies had me enamored. More so the Eagles, as Tyler Harvey was blowing my mind with his incredible talent. He reminded of Damian Lilliard and Steph Curry, but he got drafted late and is in the NBA D league for now. Anyways, this year I think the Weber St. Wildcats seem to be the favorite in the Big Sky Conference tournament (Which I’ll share later), but this conference is a crap shoot…
