American Sports Network’s experts pick your conference winners, the dark horse team to watch and let you know who else might make the NCAA Tournament field. Click here for final bracket.
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.
