Winner: Middle Tennessee-I liked the blue Radiers to win it all preseason and I like them to take care of business in the Sun Belt Tournament. MTSU is led by big man Laron Dendy. Add in fellow big man JT Sulton and you have a great 1-2 punch down low.
Sleeper: North Texas-The Mean Green went 3-3 vs the top 2 teams in each division. Tony Mitchell started play half way through the season and is now averaging a double-double. Freshman point guard Chris Jones will have to cut down on his turnovers for UNT to make a run at the title.
