Should win conference: High Point

Dark horse: Coastal Carolina

Who else might get in: Radford or Charleston Southern

Why I chose High Point: The Panthers won the regular-season title last year. But there were seven teams tied for first place with a couple of weeks left in the regular season.  Coastal Carolina is the host for the tournament and they have the best clutch player in Warren Gillis.

Should win conference: Coastal Carolina

Dark horse: Radford

Who else might get in: None

Why I chose Coastal Carolina:  Another entertaining season in the Big South will end up with the Chanticleers celebrating in front of the home folks. Cliff Ellis has four starters averaging double figures. Balanced teams with solid guard play win in March.
