Mason to the A-10 makes sense, but I’m sad as a #CAAHoops partisan.
“Like many conferences across the country, the Atlantic 10 and CAA have undergone considerable shake-ups recently. Virginia Commonwealth bolted for the A-10 following last season along with Butler, giving the A-10 16 teams. However, this past week Butler and Xavier announced plans to join the new version of the Big East with Georgetown and other basketball-centric schools.
Previously Temple and Charlotte announced plans to leave following the 2012-13 season. Temple is part of the unnamed conference with the Big East football schools and Charlotte moves to Conference USA.
Old Dominion and Georgia State were unable to participate in the CAA’s postseason tournament this season after announcing plans to join Conference USA and the Sun Belt conferencerespectively. Based on the conference’s current bylaws, George Mason would have met the same lame duck fate with a drawn out departure.”
