A-10, ACC, Big 10 SEC Championships: Prediction Central

Four conference tournaments come to an end Sunday: The Atlantic 10, ACC, Big 10, and SEC. Each team all but has a tourney bid locked up, so a win or loss will only effect their seeding.

Here are predictions for each conference championship before the Selection Show at 6p.m. EDT.

Atlantic 10: St. Louis 65, VCU 60

Expect this one to be a hotly contested battle. These teams both play the game extremely hard and with high energy. Shaka Smart gets his VCU team to pressure at all times, but Rick Majerus and the Billikens of St. Louis aren't going to back off either. This one will be intense for two teams that could definitely challenge to make a run in the tournament.

ACC: Miami 70, UNC 60

Miami got a little cold there at the end of the season, but UNC is not that great of a basketball team. Roy Williams continues to under achieve unless he has honestly too much talent. Meanwhile, coach Jim Larranaga at Miami has turned his athletic bunch into a team that could very well make a Final Four run.

SEC: Florida 72, Ole Miss 55

The SEC is not a good basketball conference this year. While the football conference has dominated seven years in a row, the basketball has floundered. Florida is a good basketball team, but the rest of the conference has a lot of work to do.

Big 10: Ohio State 54, Wisconsin 52

What was highly regarded as the best conference this season saw it's top two rated teams bounce out in Saturday's semi final. Not that this game is a disappointment. Both OSU and Wisconsin are great teams. Look for this game to be a bruiser, but for Aaron Craft to take over at the end to give OSU a win.
