Atlantic Sun Conference Tournament Predictions

It brings a smile to my face that it’s March and the madness can finally commence. We start on this beautiful March 1, 2016 with the first round of the Atlantic Sun Conference tournament. The Stenson Hatters are ineligible from the postseason and there are guidelines in place if they win. Basically, since the North Florida Ospreys are eligible  The conference tournament schedule are as follows…

Quarterfinals: March 1 (ESPN3)
Game 1: No. 8 USC Upstate Spartans at No. 1 North Florida Ospreys
Game 2: No. 5 Kennesaw State Fighting Owls at No. 4 Florida Gulf Coast Eagles
Game 3: No. 6 Lipscomb Bisons at No. 3 Jacksonville Dolphins
Game 4: No. 7 Stetson Hatters at No. 2 NJIT Highlanders

Semifinals: March 3 (ESPN3)
Game 5: Winner Game 2 vs. Winner Game 1 at higher seed
Game 6: Winner Game 3 vs. Winner Game 4 at higher seed

Championship: March 6 (ESPN2)
Game 7: Winner Game  5 vs. Winner Game 6 at higher seed

Prediction: I think the Atlantic Sun Conference doesn’t quiet have the best teams, but the North Florida Ospreys seem decent. I thought they did a good job of scheduling some tough teams in their non-conference schedule. They didn’t win any of those games, but they tested themselves. The only doubt I have is because of their random four game losing streak in conference play, but they’ve won three in a row now so….I’m going with the North Florida Ospreys to repeat and win the Atlantic Sun Tournament.
