USA Today preview (nothing here that we don't already know):
Dates: March 4-5, March 7
Contenders: Lipscomb, North Florida
The Flames, led by diminutive sharpshooter Darius McGhee, head the eight-team tournament field. Ninth league member Jacksonville had to withdraw due to the program’s ongoing COVID shutdown. In an interesting subplot, Bellarmine won 10 conference games and earned the No. 2 seed in its first year in the league but is still transitioning from Division II is not eligible for the NCAA tournament. The same is true of No. 5 seed North Alabama. Should either of those teams prevail, Liberty would still claim the automatic bid as regular-season champ.

Liberty vs. Kennesaw State, 2 p.m.
North Florida vs. North Alabama, 2 p.m.
Lipscomb vs. Florida Gulf Coast, 7 p.m.
