Even DP could have finished 9th in a down A-10
Was it a down A10 this year, though?
Davidson is one of my upset picks to knock off MSU. That's a solid squad at the top.
vcu was a different squad once Baldwin returned. They beat Vandy in Nashville, Syracuse on a neutral court, took #22 UConn to overtime, and gave #1 seed Baylor a tough contest.
Dayton started out ugly and then beat Miami, beat #1 seed Kansas, beat a tough Belmont team, and beat ACC tournament champion VA Tech.
St. Bonnie returned everyone from their A10 Championship and still finished 4th.
St. Louis was solid if unspectacular.
Richmond finished the season 14-4 and won the A10 beating vcu, Dayton, and Davidson consecutively.
The competition drops off after that, but the top 6 A10 teams were pretty solid squads
