2016 CAA Tournament Predictions

The good folks in the Colonial Athletic Assocation will have their conference championship kick off on Friday from the legendary Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore. And once again, it seems that the tournament is as wide open as it has been in recent years with potentially a handful of clubs in the mix to get that automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. But which team will it be?

It's time for my predictions for the 2016 CAA Tournament.
First Round - Friday, March 4th
8 Elon vs. 9 Drexel - Baltimore - CAA.tv, 6:00
Pick: Elon

7 College of Charleston vs. 10 Delaware- Baltimore - CAA.tv, 8:30
Pick: College of Charleston

Quarterfinals - Saturday, March 5th
1 Hofstra vs. 8 Elon - Baltimore - Comcast SportsNet, 12:00
Pick: Hofstra

4 James Madison vs. 5 William & Mary - Baltimore - CSN, 2:30
Pick: William & Mary

2 UNC Wilmington vs. 7 College of Charleston - Baltimore - CSN, 6:00
Pick: UNC Wilmington

3 Towson vs. 6 Northeastern - Baltimore - CSN, 8:30
Pick: Northeastern

Semifinals - Sunday, March 6th
1 Hofstra vs. 5 William & Mary - NBCSN, 1:00
Pick: William & Mary

2 UNC Wilmington vs. 6 Northeastern - NBCSN, 3:30
Pick: UNC Wilmington

Championship - Monday, March 7th
2 UNC Wilmington vs. 5 William & Mary - NBCSN, 7:00
The Seahawks didn't exactly look that impressive agaisnt the Tribe, winning in overtime at home and getting blown out on the road in Williamsburg. Even then, I think that Wilmington has got enough balance in their game to win the CAA auto-bid.
Pick: UNC Wilmington
