Conference Tournament Predictions

Conference tournaments are upon us and it is one of the most exciting times of the year. Time for teams to make a quest for the NCAA Tournament; Time to see who will be dancing and will be packing. So sit back and relax, and enjoy the ride.

Atlantic Sun Predictions

East Tennessee State and Belmont are head and shoulders above the rest of the conference. There is no doubt in my mind that these two will be in championship. I didn't pick any upsets in this tournament. I like ETSU in the end with the experience and play makers.


I gotta go with Complete Sports on their MVC Champion prediction. Southern Illinois is one of the best defensive teams in the country and one of the top 15 teams in the country. The MVC is deep and anyone can make a run, especially one of the top 6 seeds.
** Sorry about the brackets not completely showing up. I didn't have time to do them on Excel so I made them on paint and for some reason they don't completely show up. Just bear with me**

I'm really looking forward to the MVC Tourney... should be very good and competitive.

One underrated Tourney is in the SoCon... I'm really hoping for App St/Davidson in the final.

Yea the MVC has a lot of above average teams and I'm sure that there will be a few teams that probably don't go to the big dance simply because they're from the MVC and can't all go.

Ben Jacobson, coach for the Northern Iowa Panthers, is my first cousin.

Brian Jones, UND's basketball coach, was an assistant at Northern Iowa. So I guess there's a lot of North Dakota ties to Northern Iowa!

Sony Ericsson Takes Over Title said...

This site is so nice. Really i've been checkit for a wile. Here's some info about the Sony Ericsson tennis tournament history. If you like to visit my page it will be a pleasure. Or if know some one that likes to know about this, givethem this link. Will be nice to had some users like you with sites as good as yours. On August 29, 2006 Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications announced the signing of a four year contract worth $20 million to become the title sponsor of the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open is currently the largest tournament in the world with Title Sponsorship. When Butch Buchholz established the event in 1985, it marked the first time in 56 years that a new two-week tournament featuring men and women was launched. Located in Delray Beach (Laver’s International Tennis Center) in 1985 and Boca Raton (Boca West) in 1986, the tournament found a permanent home in 1987 on Miami’s Key Biscayne. In 1994, Miami-Dade County christened the Tennis Center at Crandon Park, a 30-acre expanse that is transformed each year from a public tennis facility into a full-fledged festival for the Sony Ericsson Open. The Sony Ericsson Open was awarded “Tournament of the Year” by the ATP for five consecutive years and seven of the last eight years and in 2004 by the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and is considered one of the most prestigious titles in professional tennis. In 1999, the tournament was purchased by IMG.
The only combined 12-day Tennis Masters Series event on the ATP and Sony Ericsson WTA Tour calendar, the Sony Ericsson Open features the world's top-ranked pros - 96 men and 96 women in singles competition, and 32 men's teams and 32 women's teams in doubles action. The men’s final is a best 3-out-of-5 sets with every other match in both men’s and women’s singles and doubles a best 2-out-of-3.We specialize in hard to find or sold-out sports tickets, concert tickets and theatertickets for sporting and entertainment events worldwide.
