CAA Basketball: The Silent Assassins:

In the past decade, the CAA has become a bit of an eye opener for the rest of college basketball.  Over the years, coaches from power conferences saw putting a CAA team on your schedule as a guaranteed win early in the season as their teams tuned up for conference play.   Ever since 2006, the CAA has caused us to take a second look at how dangerous this conference really is.  During the NCAA tournament, George Mason crashed the big dance with wins over Michigan State, North Carolina, Wichita State, and Connecticut.  In 2007, it was VCU's turn to make some noise with a big first round win over Duke. Then, in 2009 lightning would strike for a 3rd time with ODU upseting Notre Dame.  This year, the CAA looks to be stronger than ever and could very well be a two to three bid conference.  While the bottom 4 teams in this league may not be much to brag about, I want to address every team in this league fairly and recognize this seasons accomplishments on a case by case basis.  So, with no further ado I give you the 2010-2011 Colonial Athletic Association in all it's glory!
