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 South Conference, which according to KenPom is the 23rd best conference. There is good competition in this conference, but no one that is remotely close to even being a bubble team. The only way a team is coming out of this conference is via the conference tournament.
Best Teams: Winthrop Eagles, High Point Panthers, UNC Asheville Bulldogs, Coastal Carolina Chanticleers
On The Bubble:
Note: The one thing I noticed about the Big South Conference was that they were not kind to the Georgetown Hoyas. The Radford Highlanders and UNC Asheville Bulldogs both came as visitors and came out as winners. Just a fun fact, o and be on the lookout for my Big South Conference Tournament predictions today!
