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.

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.

I think this is the best mid major conference tourney because you have 4 teams that can win this tourney and can also get a win in the NCAA tourney

DantheMan,

 

You do some great work and I like your conference tourney previews. With that said, it's not Delaware State, they play in the MEAC, it's just the University of Delaware.

Agree with Beer on this one,

VCU will win this league (I think). Although there are certainly three teams I believe with the potential to do so, VCU, Northeastern and George Mason. Maynor will lead the Rams to a victory in the final though after Northeastern and George Mason have to have a hard fought game in the Semifinals.

I gotta go with George Mason here, although I wouldn't mind seeing VCU win it.
