    The A10 is having one of the worst OOC performances in recent memory.

    The A10 has a total record of 43-44. We may be able to get to 20 wins after all.

    So far it's been a cornucopia of mediocrity. I'm just hoping that SBU and URI perform well enough to be at large worthy, and maybe we can sneak a 3rd team in. Doesn't help that Adams and Matthews are both hurt though.

    Yeah the Bonnies took a big hit losing to Niagara at home but made up for it by beating Maryland on a neutral court.

    Told you so. We’re far from a great team but this league is the epitome of mediocrity this season.

    You called it dead on. I still think a 20 win season with our short lineup would be a tremendous accomplishment.

    This team's ceiling is 18 wins and I'd guess 16-17 even with the weak A-10 and fairly weak schedule.

    Because weak A-10 still way better than JMU, Lafayette, C-Sun, Binghamton...

    Looking at the upcoming schedule, after Sunday, the A10 will likely go 3-8, bringing the total to 47-52. 5 games below .500

    We may be a one bid league this year.

    Games the A-10 needs to win this week:

    La Salle over Towson (currently favored by 2)
    URI over Providence (to prove URI is legit this season)
    Fordham over Maine (to prove the floor isn't as bad as Richmond suggests it is)
    Bonnies over Buffalo (hopefully Jaylen Adams comes back from injury)
    VCU over ODU

    bonus

    Dayton over Mississippi State

    Of course, none of these are going to be easy games for any of the above teams. The OOC slate this week looks pretty daunting for the A-10.

    Kenpom has the A-10 as the 10th rated conference currently, behind the Mountain West and Missouri Valley and ahead of the West Coast conference (Gonzaga, St Mary's). I think at the start of the season we were 8th, which is where we've finished most years.

    Lunardi currently only has URI from the A-10 in his brackets.

    0-1 so far, Lasalle lost to Towson 67-61 as Towson improves to 7-1.

    Duquesne also has a shot tonight against a pretty mediocre Pitt team that nearly lost at home to High Point.

    Duquesne loses to Pitt, 76-64... so 0-2.

    At least Davidson is close in their game right now against UNC... but the lead is 7 for UNC with 10 mins to play... and now UNC is up 14 and starting to run away

    A-10 is going to have to probably count on a Bonnies-URI A-10 final to get two teams in.

    Man, we were one year late...

    Other than La Salle, pretty much nailed the rest of the games.

    I know having A-10 teams do well is good for the conference but i cant bring myself to be happy for any of them. I root against all of them and hope they all lose (except for Mason obviously)
