If you like surprises, this has been the tournament for you. Western Kentucky has fought through three games in three nights to get to the finale of the Sun Belt Tournament, while Florida International just bounced what might have been the biggest favorite to win a conference tournament in the country this year, the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders just last night. Can either of these teams muster up the goods to be able to win this rubber match between the two? The home team won both of the games this year when these two met, and they were both very odd games that weren’t quite indicative of what we are expecting to see in this one. We think that the pace is going to be awfully slow, and the shooting will be sloppy from the get go. A lot of the conference finals are low scoring games in these tournaments just due to pure exhaustion, and this is going to be the prime example of it. Don’t be shocked if this one doesn’t even sniff 120 points. We’ll pick WKU to move on to the dance, but we think that the ‘under’ is the far better play to make.
Western Kentucky vs. Florida International Pick: Under
Sun Belt Final Prediction: Western Kentucky 62 – Florida International 57
