The Atlantic Sun tournament which is being hosted by Mercer - might provide some of the best basketball in the postseason tournament atmosphere. It's another one-bid league - and a handful of teams have a reasonable shot at winning it. The home court makes 6th seeded Mercer an option - and either of the 4 or 5 Campbell or East Tennessee State is capable of beating Lipscomb - which is the top seed. Belmont has past history on its side and shouldn't be ignored if they make it past Mercer in the first round. Our rooting interest, and pick for that matter, is Jacksonville. The Dolphins under the direction of former Mount point guard Cliff Warren look to secure the NCAA berth from the second seed.
The Patriot League always provides some postseason fireworks. But it seems like when the dust settles, the champ always wins the thing. Lehigh is in that role this year. The Engineers (we know, Richard) dominated the conference during the regular season and get started with Army later this evening. The Mount beat both Navy and American on the road this year - and those two square off in a first round clip tonight. Should Lehigh falter, you would expect either Bucknell or Lafayette to pick up the pieces. If that happens, they could be Play-In game targets.
