Atlantic 10 Bracketology & NET Ranking Implications

The first release of this year’s NET Rankings was a pleasant surprise to A-10 fans. The conference currently has 3 teams in the top 25 and 7 teams in the top 75.

Davidson Good: Davidson is 80.6% from the free throw line as a team. That’s good enough for 19th in the nation.

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.
