Conference Tournament Previews: CAA

I am going to preview every single conference tournament one by one. Instead of what I initially started I am going to do them all on separate blog entries because I feel like this will give everyone a chance to discuss these conference tournaments. It will give them a home where everyone can join in and post their thoughts. Please comment.

First Round: March 6th
#8 Georgia State vs. #9 Delaware
#5 Hofstra vs. #12 UNC-Wilmington
#7 James Madison vs. #10 William & Mary
#6 Drexel vs. #11 Towson

Quarterfinals: March 7
#8/9 vs. #1 VCU
#5/12 vs. # 4 Old Dominion
#7/10 vs. #2 George mason
#6/11 vs. # 3 Northeastern

Semifinals: March 8

Championship: March 9

 

Prediction: I got this preview up a little late and I aplogize for that. The CAA Tournament will be one of the first conferences to hand out their automatic bid since the tournament is played out in a quick four day span. Virginia Commonwealth is the most experienced team, and the Rams have Eric Maynor who can take the team on his back if needed. This conference (like a few others I've previewed) has three very good teams.

CAA Conference Tournament:

First Round:
#8 Georgia State (March 6th)
#9 Delaware State

#5 Hofstra (March 6th)
#12 UNC Wilmington

#7 James Madison (March 6th)
#10 William & Mary

#6 Drexel (March 6th)
#11 Townson

Quarterfinals
#1 VCU (March 7th)
Georgia State/Delaware State

#4 Old Dominion
Hofstra/UNC Wilmington

#2 George Mason
James Madison/William & Mary

#3 Northeastern
Drexel/Towson

Semifinals: March 8th

Championship: March 9th

Prediction: This league has three very good teams that must casual fans haven't had the chance to watch. Virgina Commonwealth, George Mason, and Northeastern can all win this tournament and all make a small run in the NCAA Tournament. It's hard to pick against the #1 seed in any conference tournament, and it's even harder to pick against an experienced team like VCU. Eric Maynor and the Rams are ready to get back to the NCAA Tournament.
