My prediction: This tournament should be fun. Liberty is going for four tourney titles in a row, and has the league's best player in Darius McGhee. However, the Flames are only 3-3 in their last 6 games and almost finished the regular season by losing at home to Kennesaw State. On the other hand, FGCU has won 7 of its last 8 games, Jacksonville has won 5 of its last 6 games, and Jacksonville St. won its last 4 games. I am taking FGCU to upset Liberty in the semifinals, and then they will fall to Jax St. in the title game. We will see. Enjoy!
