CAA Tournament “If It Ended Today”
Figured I’d do something to update what the pairings could be in the conference tourney “if the season ended today.”

We’re 4 games in for everybody, so I figured it’d be a good point to do this.

Here we go.

Saturday

#9 UNCW vs #8 Drexel
#10 JMU vs. #7 Towson

Sunday

Drexel/UNCW vs. #1 W&M
#5 Charleston vs. #4 Hofstra
JMU/Towson vs. #2 Elon
#6 Delaware vs. #3 Northeastern

I feel sorry for anyone that tries to figure this out through 5 games 03-wink.

Biggest surprise so far is W&M. Biggest disappointment is Towson. Everyone else seems to be where you'd expect them to be.

RE: CAA Tournament “If It Ended Today”
Here are each team's CAA standings rank (using RPI as the tiebreaker because of teams who haven't played each other) and Preseason Poll rank:

William & Mary: 1, 8
Hofstra: 2, 4
Elon: 3, 3
Northeastern: 4, 6
College of Charleston: 5, 1
Delaware: 6, 7
Towson: 7, 2
UNC Wilmington: 8, 5
Drexel: 9, 9
James Madison: 10, 10

Why are you ranking Towson ahead of C of C? They're both 3-3. They split head-to-head. Record against William & Mary can't be used because C of C hasn't played them. Then C of C wins the tiebreaker over Towson in the combined record against the 4-2 teams.

Clearly, it doesn't matter at all right now. Posts like, we are surprised that W&M has 5 wins, or JMU has none make sense. Bracket the March tournament with 12 games to go, and you will get all kinds of things that have no chance of happening by the time we get to March.

W&M and Delaware are the early surprises. Not surprised where Towson and Charleston are given their early schedules. Both of those teams look ready to run off multiple winning streaks going forward. But, there are no really bad teams so it is way too early to predict anything. We will know more in 3 weeks or so. Expect neither Charleston nor Towson to be in a Saturday position then.

I wasn't saying the tiebreakers mattered now. I was saying that if the tiebreakers did matter now and they are what I think they are, sctvman is wrong.
