Atlantic Sun conference tournament preview

This is part 1 of a 32-part series.

FGCU 12-2
Lipscomb 10-4
Jacksonville 8-6
NJIT 7-7
North Florida 7-7
Kennesaw St 6-8
Stetson 4-10
USC Upstate 2-12

3 rounds to be played February 26, March 1, and March 4.  Higher seed hosts each time, no neutral site games here.

1) FGCU vs. 8) USC Upstate
4) NJIT vs. 5) North Florida
3) Jacksonville vs. 6) Kennesaw St
2) Lipscomb vs. 7) Stetson

The stakes:
Pretty low.  FGCU might avoid the 16 line if enough upsets happen; so might Lipscomb.  Everyone else would be Dayton-bound.  A-Sun is in their usual position near the bottom of D-1, so not a lot going on here.  Did you know Lipscomb's non-con SoS is 27?  Who knew.  They're the only team in the conference in position for a CBI/CIT bid, if they want one.

I will go with Florida Gulf Coast to win this. I don't care that much who wins it though but may as well be the highest ranked team on the off chance they could compete with a 1 seed.
