The Conference Tournament Pool -- Atlantic Sun First-Round Preview

The Atlantic Sun spreads its first round out over the next two nights, so the only game tonight is (2) East Tennessee State vs. (7) Stetson, which tips at 9:30 EST. Everyone in our pool has picked ETSU in that game.

Tomorrow night in the A-Sun, we get (4) Lipscomb vs (5) Campbell and (3) Belmont vs. (6) Mercer. The picks for those games are as follows:

Lipscomb: Dan, Sal, Rob, Ed, Mark, Steve.
Campbell: Nino, Chris, Yohan, Jon, Jim, Greg.

Belmont: Nino, Chris, Yohan, Sal, Rob, Jon, Ed, Mark, Steve, Greg.
Mercer: Dan, Jim.

Six participants -- Nino, Chris, Yohan, Rob, Ed and Greg -- picked Belmont to win the A-Sun tournament, perhaps overlooking the fact that Mercer played them so tough this year.

Jim and Mark picked No. 1 seed Jacksonville to win the title.

Sal, Steve and Jon picked East Tennessee State.

Dan picked Lipscomb.

The Atlantic Sun semifinals are scheduled for Friday, with Jacksonville playing the Lipscomb-Campbell winner and the winners of the other two first-round matches facing off. The final is scheduled for Saturday.
