Conference Tournament Previews: Patriot League

I am going to preview every single conference tournament one by one. Instead of what I initially started I am going to do them all on separate blog entries because I feel like this will give everyone a chance to discuss these conference tournaments. It will give them a home where everyone can join in and post their thoughts. Please comment.

Patriot League Conference Tournament

Quar terfinals:
#8 Lafayette (March 4th)
#1 American

#5 Lehigh (March 4th)
#4 Army

#7 Bucknell (March 4th)
#2 Holy Cross

#6 Colgate (March 4th)
#3 Navy

Lafayette/American Winner (March 8th)
Lehigh/Army Winner

Bucknell/Holy Cross Winner (March 8th)
Colgate/Navy Winner

Championship: March 13th

Prediction: Last season the Patriot League was a battle between American and Navy all season. This year it looks like it could end up the same way. American won the regular season title and is my pick to win the conference tournament. One of the more interesting first round matchups has Bucknell taking on Holy Cross, two pretty big rivals in the league. Don't be surprised if there's a Cinderella run but put your money on American.
