The Atlantic Ten Conference is a 1 bid league.
1- VCU- beat UNI @ home which is the A-10's best win this season thus far. think the A-10 has 1 win over a ranked opponent and this has been it. Lost by 20 at home to UVA and also beat a good Belmont team at home. The A-10's only hope to get to the NCAA as they are far & away the conference's most complete team which is not saying a hell of a lot since this VCU team aint all that impressive.
2. URI- Rams beat Southern Miss but lost to Providence. No real resume except a win over Nebraska who lost to Incarnate Word. Still think the Rams will challenge VCU or come in 2nd or 3rd.
3. GW- Best win is sadly Depaul (who just lost to Illinois State) or Charlotte which is not good. Chances for solid wins in Hawaii upcoming (COLO, Wichita, but must beat Ohio 1st) but no resume wins. Needs to run the table or close to it during Jan/Feb/March to have any shot of being on the bubble. A loss by 13 to Penn State which is a bottom Big 10 team & Seton Hall, a mediocre Big East team at best will drastically hurt any real chances. Maybe the Aloha State visit changes the season around. Mele kalikimaka. The PSU game was a complete dud that will haunt Lonergan until PSU comes to Smith in 360 days.
4 UMass- Lost at home to Florida Gulf Coast, blown out @ LSU by 25 & still has to go to BYU. Resume is less than impressive.
5-Davidson- Suprise of the conference but yet to be tested. Scoring 110 vs Montana will not happen during the A-10. Do have great outside shooting. This team will suprise people in the next 3 months. Will not finish 12th as predicted.
6-Dayton- 2 star centers robbed 25 dorm rooms this weekend. Not very smart. No player over 6'6 means a lot of zone for Archie. Blown out by Arkansas and barely beat Bowling Green. No great wins.
7-St Louis- Blown out by Wichita & lost to South Dakota St. Barely beat SIU-Edwardsville. Beat Pan-American. Rebuilding year for SLU but will win some A-10 games.
8-Richmond- Lost to James Madison, beat Howard & WIlliam & Mary. Could suprise in the next 3 months but doubtful
9-St Bona- Lost to Pitt. Beat Ohio. Soft Non-Con for Schmidt. Will win those winter games in Olean.
10-LaSalle- Lost to American. Blown out by Nova. Not very good. Beat Drexel. lost to Temple
11- St Joe- Blown out by Nova. Beat Loyola. GW plays on Hawk Hill to open A-10 play. Lose that...call off the dogs.
12- Mason- Copes done. Lost @ UNI. Beat D2 Catawba. Hewitt seat warming up.
13- Duq- Yikes. Blown out by Robert Morris. Blown out by St Francis Pa. Jim Ferry's team stinks. only lost by 2 at PSU.
14- Ford- Severe gone. Beat Monmouth, Siena. Blown out by St John's. No hope in the Bronx.
