The Ohio Valley Conference coaches and athletic director’s have made their picks, but now it’s time for the important ones: ours!

Before I unveil our picks for this year, let’s take a moment to look back at how awesome we were at this last year…

So, those didn’t go particularly well. But I was slightly more accurate in my picks

Tom: Total picks off by 26 positions
Catlin: Total picks off by 24 positions

But, this year, we’re confident we have it right. At least, I’m confident that I’m right, and Tom is completely, utterly wrong, except where he agrees with me. Here you go, the official OVC Ball picks for the 2013-14 season, ranked by expected tournament seed.
