Greg's Best Guess - Vol. 1 Issue 15

For starters - click below for each and every predicted tournament thus far:

Atlantic Sun

Big South & Patriot League

Big Ten, Northeast & Ohio Valley

MAAC, Missouri Valley, Southern & West Coast

Horizon League

America East, Colonial Athletic Association & Summit League

MAC & MEAC

ACC, Big Sky & SWAC

Atlantic 10, Big East, Big 12, Conference USA, Mountain West, Pac-12, SEC, Southland, Sun Belt & WAC

 

There's only three more tournaments to go with two tipping-off on Thursday. Here's how I see the AAC & Big West tournaments.

 

AAC Tournament

A whole tournament going straight chalk is probably not likely, but as I broke down each matchup that's how this one turned out. If there are any teams that could upset the applecart I would look to Temple and/or Houston. Outside of those two, however, if anyone knocks off Cincinnati and Wichita State on the way to the championship it will be a surprise. The Bearcats and Shockers played two great games in the regular season and a rubber match for all the marbles would be great to witness. Wichita State impressed with a road win against Cincinnati and I think they have the right scoring pieces to combat Cincy's stingy defense.

 

Big West Tournament

First, it's important to note that this tournamen re-seeds teams in the semifinal round, so that's why Hawaii and Long Beach State look out of place there. Hawaii has played UC Irving tough enough to pull an upset over the 3 seed, but UC Davis will have their way to the championship game. The other half of the bracket has UC Santa Barbara as the 2 seed and I think the Gauchos will play their way into the NCAA Tournament by knocking down the Aggies in the title match.

 

Up next: There's just one tournament left to unveil - the Ivy League Tournament starts on Saturday - full preview will be released on Friday. See you then!
