our three conference tourneys

Day 1  MACT no surprises

March 12 Sunbelt


1 UTSA vs. Florida International 12 p.m. American Sports Network
2 Middle Tennessee vs. Charlotte 2:30 p.m. American Sports Network
3 Western Kentucky vs. Marshall 6 p.m. American Sports Network
4 North Texas vs. Rice


march 12: Surprised W.Mich lost to Akron

march 13- UAB survived, MTSU  kept ODU from dancing. TX St in a mild upset over UT-ARl in the Sunbelt. How about AKron’s run in the MAC

March 14-I’ve been touting UAB  and stuck with them through their late season slump . Big game today vs MTSU, a 6 seed, in the CUSA final UAB will need another big gameinside  from Mehinti.MTSU got a great game from DJ Jones, a reserve, in yesterday’s win over LT. He’ll need to be ready again today. LT may be NIT bound.

Buffalo’s X Ford (17 Pts, 11 Reb, 2 Stl ) slowed down the Zips and will face C. Mich  C Fowler (26 Pts, 5 Reb, 5 Ast, 2 Stl). Two top seeds in the final but a slim chance for both to go dancing.

UL Lafayette K Shepherd (16 Pts, 3 Reb, 2 Ast, 1 Blk) ended TX St cinderella move and ULM M Deng (12 Pts, 14 Reb, 2 Ast) defeated S. Bama. I’m looking for an all Georgia final tomorrow. (1)Ga St led by Harrow & Hunter  should get by (4) ULL, and (2)Ga. Southern led by Hewitt will eke one out over (3)ULM.

Of these three conferences, Louisiana Tech or CMU (if they lose and need an at large bid) have a chance at dancing. I’m sticking with my 4  from 3 theme.

march 15- Too bad i didn’t bet on UAB when I predicted they’d win the CUSAT. UAB 73 MTSU 60

Bobby Hurley cutting down the nets- this time as Buffalo’s coach. Buff 89 CMU 84

Buffalo: S. Evans 18 Pts, 5 Reb, 4 Ast, 1 Stl, 1 Blk. X fORD added18

Central Michigan: C. Fowler 27 Pts, 2 Reb, 9 Ast, 2 Stl, 2 B

Georgia St started it paybacks   for losing last year’s SunBelt final to ULL  and will complete their quest by edging  GASO today. Yesterday GST 83 ULL 79.    GSO 44 ULM 43
