The 2021 Summit League Men’s Basketball Championship takes place March 6-9 at the Sanford Pentagon in Sioux Falls, S.D.
Here is the complete Summit League bracket for 2021:
Predictions for the winner: North Dakota State (No.3 seed) They split the season ending series with the two teams seeded ahead of them over the past 10 days including closing out the year beating South Dakota. The Bison are a tough bunch that will keep every game close and they usually thrive in that setting.
Long shot possibility: Oral Roberts (No.4 seed). They are led by the leading scorer in college basketball Max Abmas with 24.7 points per game. When you have that one guy who can score at will it could be enough to get them dancing in March.
