AAC Championship Game Notes:
#4 Tennessee Wesleyan vs #7 Union 1pm ET WATCH LIVE
Union is playing their best basketball of the season behind AAC POY Markell Turner. This Union team has won 7 straight AAC Tournament Titles and will look to make it 8-straight this afternoon. Standing in their way is a HOT Tennessee Wesleyan team. It’s crazy to think that the last time Union didn’t win the AAC Tournament it was won by Tennessee Wesleyan. That means it’s going to be 9 straight years where Union or Tennessee Wesleyan won the AAC Tournament. Looking forward to the matchup between Bryant Bernard and Markell Turner today. Two guards who can really fill it up! A National Tournament bid on the line for both of these teams today!
The last team, outside of the Union Bulldogs to win the AAC Tourney? – Tennessee Wesleyan in 2013-14
AAC has (2) auto-bids: The AAC Tournament Champion and the 2nd team will be selected by the AAC Committee
Our Pick To Win It: Reinhardt – Got eliminated in Semifinals.
