The non-conference schedule is over in college basketball, and it’s time for the Atlantic 10 to begin conference play! These 16 games will make or break the season, separating the contenders from the pretenders.
There are no terrible teams in this conference. The A-10 is one of five conferences in college hoops with every team at .500 or better. No team has a losing record, which shows the parity they have the potential to display every Wednesday and Saturday night.
As St. Bonaventure coach Mark Schmidt said in the postgame interview after Saturday’s win over Cornell, the A-10 is one of the toughest conferences in Division 1. Which teams will pass the test? Let’s break them all down! (Note: Teams are ordered by non-conference record)
