Before we get to the bracket. Here’s a prediction for a conference tournament beginning today.
AMERICA EAST: Vermont blew through the regular season with just one blemish on their record in a three-point loss at runner-up Stony Brook. In the rematch, the Catamounts won by 16. In fact, the rest of the conference hasn’t been close as only one of their 15 conference wins have been decided by fewer than 10 points. Nothing indicates that Vermont isn’t going to the Big Dance.
Last Four In: Oregon, Minnesota, Tennessee, Nebraska
Last Four Out: Georgetown, Florida St, California, Providence
