Championship Game Notes:
As we mentioned in on NHR – The Podcast in our Conference Tournament Preview Show, The Sun Conference always seems to have a team outside of the Top 2 win the Tournament. Keiser is playing as well as anyone in the league and was our pick to win it in our 1st preview. St Thomas was our upset special pick! They will have to slow down CoreVon Lott if they are going to pick up another upset, win The Sun Conference Tournament and advance to the NAIA National Tournament. The team that can control the tempo in this game should come away as the winner!
The Sun Conference has (2) auto-bids: The TSC Regular Season Champ: Warner and TSC Tournament Champ/2nd place regular season if Warner wins tournament as well.
Our Pick To Win It: Keiser – We love the way this team is playing right now. Coach Bryant has the Eagles playing with a lot of confidence right now. Pair that with TSC leading scorer CoreVon Lott and you have a team that is ready to strike gold!
