College of Charleston (SoCon Tournament)

February 26, 2012 No Comments by Charles

The Mountaineers will most likely be big underdogs in the first round of the tournament. Appalachian only won two games against the SoCon South all season long and was handled easily by the Cougars in Boone in mid-February. I am thinking Charleston will be favored by 9 points here. Line was posted with Appalachian being […]

Western Carolina

February 25, 2012 No Comments by Charles

Going into this game I had a feeling I was not going to feel comfortable with whatever pick I made. My gut feeling considering the results from earlier in the week was that Western would be favored. Appalachian won by 12 at home this year over Western, but that was somewhat of an anomaly. The […]

UNC-Greensboro has locked the North Division championship with the Elon and Samford […]
