Southwestern Athletic Conference Predictions

The Southwestern Athletic Conference begins today with a pair of games on tap. I may as well as include the SWAC with the MEAC, in terms of being the deepest the pits of Division I. The SWAC has produced “Play-in” and 16 seeded teams for as long as I can remember, until the Texas Southern Tigers turned back the clock and made it as a 15 seed last year. I hate to joke, but it is what it is. Anyways, the Southwestern Athletic Conference Tournament schedule are as follows…

Opening Round: March 8 (SWAC.org)
Game 1: No. 10 Grambling State Tigers vs. No. 7 Mississippi Valley Delta Devils
Game 2: No. 9 Arkansas-Pine Bluff Golden Lions vs. No. 8 Alabama A&M Bulldogs

Quarterfinals: March 9 (SWAC.org)
Game 3: Winner Game 1 vs. No. 2 Alcorn State Braves
Game 4: Winner Game 2 vs. No. 1 Texas Southern Tigers

Quarterfinals: March 10 (SWAC.org)
Game 5: No. 6 Prairie View A&M Panthers vs No. 3 Jackson State Tigers
Game 6: No. 5 Southern Jaguars vs. No. 4 Alabama State Hornets

Semifinals: March 11 (SWAC.org)
Game 7: Winner Game 5 vs. Winner Game 3
Game 8: Winner Game 6 vs. Winner Game 4

Championship: March 12 (ESPNU)
Game 9: Winner Game 7 vs. Winner Game 8

Prediction: I mean, the conference website isn’t even dot com…. But, I’m going to side with the Texas Southern Tigers, who went 1-11 in their non conference schedule. It was a tough non-conference schedule however, so kudos to them. They’ve turned it around it in conference, going 16-2, which is good enough for me to analyze this any further and just pick them.
