Colonial Athletic Association Conference Tournament Preview

This was one of the most underrated conference in the country the entire season. Old Dominion was dominant until the final week, where they lost 2 of their final 4 games. In addition to them, five other teams finished with double figure wins within the conference.
Favorites: Old Dominion has one of the best players in the conference in Alex Loughton, along with Isaiah Hunter producing from the perimeter. UNC-Wilmington is very balanced on offense, and has the second best defense in the conference. Virginia Commonwealth has the best forward combo in the league in Nick George and Michael Doles.
Sleepers: Hofstra has won nine of their past ten, and has arguably the best all-around player in the conference in Loren Stokes. George Mason is the highest scoring team in the league, and has a multitude of weapons.
Prediction: Old Dominion is the favorite to win it, but they are not playing their best ball of the year. I'm going to go out on a limb and say that Hofstra is going to win the tournament. They own wins over the top 3 seeds and are playing the best basketball of anyone in the league currently.
