The CAA (Colonial Athletic Association) Men's Basketball Tournament started Friday this weekend, and here's a quick run-down of how I believe it's gonna play out.
Towson Defeated Drexel, 73-62
James Madison Dominated William & Mary, 70-48
Hofstra topped UNC Wilmington 79-66
and Georgia St. surprised Delaware, 54-41
VCU knocked the surging Panthers (GSU) 62-51
and as I am writing this, Hofstra and ODU are fighting it out with Hofstra on top 29-28 at the Half.
I foresee ODU pulling it out in a close one to move on to the Semis tomorrow.
Mason plays the home team in Richmond against James Madison
and Northeastern will try to survive against Towson.
Mason should squeeze it out against Madison and Northeastern is the better team in the late game and I see them moving on to Sunday. These two will meet Sunday evening and Mason will best Northeastern to move on to the CAA championship for the 3rd consecutive year.
VCU will face ODU as the early game Sunday and VCU should move on as the favorite to win it all.
Monday Night will have the championship game with Mason and VCU head to head for only the second time this season. VCU got the best of Mason in the earlier contest, but I think Mason will prevail and be only the fourth CAA team to win back to back tourney rings.
