2013 Summit League Postseason Projections–3/6

Filed under: Men's Basketball,The Summit League — Jon Green @ 10:30 am

Last week South Dakota State was projected a #14 or #15 seed. This week it’s the same situation as thing really haven’t changed much. After the conference tournament is over next weekend we’ll see how the winner is looking. Perhaps we’ll even see that a few #13s are knocked out by not winning their conference tournament and South Dakota State can sneak up a line.

I’ve found the sites I’m using for the projections from It’s a fantastic site linking you to tons of information about various projections out there.

I decided to use seven of their best brackets from last year along with three very prominent brackets. Here’s our panelists:
1. – Lobofan2003’s Bracketology
2. – D1scourse/USA Today’s – Patrick Stevens
3. – Beer’s Bracket
4. – Busting the Bracket
5. – Bracketville
6. – The Bracket Project
7. – Brad-ketology
8. – Yahoo Sports – Brad Evans
9. – CBS Sports – Jerry Palm
10.– ESPN Bracketology – Joe Lunardi

Now yes some of the names may scare you but these guys have been doing brackets for at least three years and have scored the best, all of them better than Joe Lunardi who is the expert of the field.

Here’s the projections they have.

Predictor Team In Seed Opponent Location Regional Date of Prediction
Lobofan2003 South Dakota State 14 Arizona San Jose West 3/4/13
Patrick Stevens South Dakota State 14 Arizona San Jose West 3/5/13
Beer’s Bracket South Dakota State 14 Arizona San Jose South 3/1/13
Busting the Bracket South Dakota State 14 2/26/13
Bracketville South Dakota State 15 Miami Lexington South 3/4/13
The Bracket Project South Dakota State 14 3/4/13
Brad-ketology South Dakota State 14 3/5/13
Brad Evans South Dakota State 14 3/5/13
Jerry Palm South Dakota State 14 Michigan Auburn Hills East 3/5/13
Joe Lunardi South Dakota State 14 Florida Dayton South 3/5/13

Here’s some other predictions that include NIT (and occasionally CBI/CIT) … just for a taste of what people think.
Bracket Predictions – 3/4 NIT – No Summit League Teams
Brad-Ketology – 3/5 NIT – South Dakota State a #7 seed if they don’t make the NCAA tournament.
Bracket Project – 3/5 NIT – North Dakota State a 7 seed vs. Iowa.
Beer’s Bracket – 3/1 CBI – Has North Dakota State a #1 seed vs. UCF. He also has Western Illinois as a #2 seed in the CIT vs. California Irvine and Oakland as a #3 seed in the CIT vs. George Mason.
