A look ahead at the most important remaining Atlantic 10 non-conference games

It’s crazy to think non-conference play is starting to wind down, but once the holidays pass us by, we’ll be watching conference games. The Atlantic 10 has done a great job taking advantage of significant non-conference opportunities against opponents worth beating: LSU, Saint Mary’s, and Wisconsin are just a few of the teams to fall …

Atlantic 10 Player of the Year Race: Who’s in the lead, and who’s in the hunt?

There have certainly been surprise candidates playing well this year, but there have also been rock-solid players that haven’t faltered from the preseason A-10 POY race. We often get lost in what teams are playing well in the non-conference, so it’s important to step back and remember what players are exceeding expectations as well. We’re a long way from …

Atlantic 10 Bracketology: 12/3/19

We made it through November! All things considered, it’s been a pretty solid month for the Atlantic 10 who realistically has 2 teams trending towards an at-large bid and a few others knocking on the door.

It’s only November, but the Atlantic 10 is scorching hot — a look at some of the league’s best wins so far

The past 2 seasons in the Atlantic 10 have built up to 2019-20. The league as a whole went through a big transitional phase when Will Wade and Archie Miller left VCU and Dayton respectively. The very next year, Dan Hurley jumped ship to Connecticut as Rhode Island bulldozed its way through the league. 2018-19 …

Way-Too-Early Atlantic 10 Bracketology: 11/24/19

It may only be November, but it’s always on our minds: the NCAA Tournament, March Madness, the Big Dance… whatever you call it. The reason it’s always on our minds in November is that a conference like the A-10 can’t do a lot to get more teams in the tourney once conference play rolls around …

One good, one bad stat for all 14 Atlantic 10 teams

Davidson Good: Davidson is 80.6% from the free throw line as a team. That’s good enough for 19th in the nation. The Wildcats were 20/23 from the charity stripe in their opening loss to Auburn and kept it close for most of the game even with Kellan Grady and Jon Axel Gudmundsson struggling. Bad: Davidson is …

Nothing like November

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a college basketball fan who’ll tell you March isn’t the best month of the season. I don’t disagree; seasons are made, and most importantly, completed, in March. But when you’re like me and you cover an entire conference and root on 14 teams night-in and night-out, it feels like the …
