March Madness Championship Game Predictions: 3 Conference Championships To Catch Tuesday Night

Tuesday night has three conference championship games on the dock. The Northeast Conference, Horizon League, and Summit League all will be sending a team to the NCAA Tournament. Conference Championship games are often hotly contested affairs, so be sure to tune in to catch these high intensity games. 

Northeast Conference, 7 p.m., ESPN2 - Mount St. Mary's vs. LIU Brooklyn

The Mountaineers of Mount St. Mary's will travel to Long Island University Brooklyn to take on the Blackbirds. Mt. St. Mary's is coming off an upset of Robert Morris, but don't expect them to take down high scoring LIU even though they'll hang around mos of the evening. 

Prediction: LIU 84, Mt. S. Mary's 80

Horizon League, 9 p.m., ESPN - Valparaiso vs. Wright State. Buzzer beater over Detroit.

Wright State is coming off a buzzer beater over Detroit, but the Crusaders of Valpo seem poised and ready for the hot shooting Raiders. 

Prediction: Valpo 64, Wright State 58


Summit League, 9 p.m., ESPN2 - South Dakota State vs. North Dakota State. 

In a battle for North vs. South supremacy, the Bison of North Dakota State will take on the Jackrabbits from the South. SDSU won last year, but don't expect the Bison to sit down without a fight. History will repeat itself, the north will prevail in a buzzer beater.

Prediction: NDSU 70, SDSU 69
