Play-In Round (Higher Seed Hosts)

Tuesday, February 23rd

#9 Harris-Stowe @ #8 William Woods

January 9th, William Woods def Harris-Stowe 89-72

-February 6th, William Woods def Harris-Stowe 72-62

-It’s clear William Woods is the better team, and with Harris-Stowe being winless coming into the conference tournament, I don’t see that changing.

Quarter Final Round (Higher Seed Hosts)

February 25th

#8 William Woods @ #1 Lyon

-January 16th, Lyon def William Woods 65-51

-This game shouldn’t be a first round matchup. Based off of record, this is a second round matchup at the earliest. The AMC’s rule on cancellations and games played has put William Woods at a disadvantage. However, this is what the schedule says, and Lyon coming off of a win over Central Baptist to take over first place, will be hard to beat.

#7 Health Sciences & Pharmacy @ #2 Central Baptist

-January 7th, Central Baptist def HSP 93-75

-February 14th, Central Baptist def HSP 92-69

-I can’t see this being much of a contest. The AMC’s rules on standings gave HSP the #7 seed and I don’t expect this to be much of a contest.

#6 Hannibal-LaGrange @ #3 Missouri Baptist

January 19th, Missouri Baptist def HLGU 77-69

-January 30th, Missouri Baptist def HLGU 65-53

-This matchup looks to favor Missouri Baptist, as they seem to be the better team here in this matchup.

#5 Williams Baptist @ #4 Columbia

-January 21st, Columbia def Williams Baptist 62-54

-Williams Baptist’s lack of consistency leads me to favor Columbia in this one. Columbia throughout the season has been the better team, and I expect them to pull away in this one.

Semi Finals (Higher Seed Hosts)

Saturday,February 27th

#4 Columbia @ #1 Lyon

January 19th, Columbia def Lyon 73-64

February 13th, Lyon def Columbia 56-54

-Interesting matchup here. The difference between these teams is the games played differential. Columbia played 13 games, Lyon played 10. Lyon had a smaller sample, and made the most of it to their advantage. I have to go with home court advantage here. I think these teams are evenly matched, and I’m expecting a shootout.

#3 Missouri Baptist @ #2 Central Baptist

January 16th, Central Baptist def Missouri Baptist 74-65

February 13th, Missouri Baptist def Central Baptist 80-63

-What a matchup here. Honestly, I’m torn on who to take, it’s so close for me. However, Central Baptist I feel has the edge with home court.

AMC Final (Higher Seed Hosts)

Tuesday, March 2nd

#2 Central Baptist @ #1 Lyon

January 12th, Central Baptist def Lyon 84-59

February 21st, Lyon def Central Baptist 91-78

-I love this matchup right here. I just feel like Central Baptist is the better team here. I think Central Baptist takes their second title in three years.
