Horizon League Conference Tournament Preview

horizonDates:  March 4-11
Location:  Various Campus Sites

Predicted Champ: Green Bay (24-5, 14-2 A Sun)

The Phoenix are ready to rise after winning 24 games for the first time since their last NCAA tourney team in 1996 when they played in the Midwestern Collegiate Conference.  This season they swept #2 seed Cleveland State with a pair of double digit wins, beat ACC champ Virginia in December and had 3-PT loss to Wisconsin in November.

Upset Potential:  

Not Likely.   It would be shocking if Green Bay didn’t run away with this one.  In fact, a loss in this conference tournament would likely eliminate them from all post season hope, even with 24+ wins.

Projected Tournament MOP:  Keifer Sykes, Green Bay
