As we draw closer to March Madness, I can’t help but to analyze each conference for teams either worth an At-large bid or one whom is on the bubble. Here, I examine the Colonial Athletic Association, which according to KenPom is the 9th best conference. I must say that the Colonial Athletic Association has vastly improved. Last year it was a dud, with little to no competition. This year, we got five super competitive teams that are going to make the conference tournament a nightmare to predict.
Best Teams: UNC Wilmington Seahawks, Hofstra Pride, James Madison Dukes, William & Mary Tribe, Towson Tigers
On The Bubble:
Note: I built up how improved the Colonial Athletic Association, yet I have no teams even on the bubble. However, I think that the UNC Wilmington Seahawks and Hofstra Pride are good teams. More so the Pride, as they tested themselves in their non-conference schedule and even beat the likes of the Florida St. Seminoles and St. Bonaventure Bonnies. Improved Conference, improved teams….bright future.
