COAST 2 COAST PREDICTIONS

SEMI-FINALS PREDICTIONS
#19 Nike Buchanan Mentality vs. #18 Yanders Law
#13 Team Teague vs. #10 MWA Elite

FINALS PREDICTIONS
#19 Nike Buchanan Mentality vs. #10 MWA Elite

One of the hardest tournaments to predict we will see all season with the final four consisting of 4 ranked teams. Nike Buchanan Mentality is currently the lowest ranked of the four remaning but the way they are playing right now, we like them to move on and knock off the favorites MWA Elite in the championship game. 

A field of only 12 but all are elite teams. Even though Joe Johnson Hawks didn't make the final four we have mention the outstanding performance by JaShawn Andrews. Andrews scored 26 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in their quarterfinal loss, 74-68 to #13 ranked Team Teague.
