It has been somewhat of a down year for the A-10 conference. However, that means there will be a handful of teams capable of taking home the A-10 Conference Tournament title. Last season, the Richmond Spiders, a No. 6 seed, rattled off four-straight wins to claim their second A-10 title.
The Spiders had to go through the top three seeds to book their ticket to the NCAA Tournament and then upset the Iowa Hawkeyes in the first round. More than likely, the A-10 will be a one-team conference as far as March Madness is concerned, which makes the conference tournament all the more important!
Check out the A-10 Conference Tournament betting odds below and our favorite teams to come away with an automatic bid to “The Big Dance.”
Saint Louis Billikens
George Washington Colonials
St. Bonaventure Bonnies
Relative to where they were projected to finish in the preseason, the Dayton Flyers have underperformed. Still, Dayton is one of the best teams in the A-10 and has a strong chance at booking an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament.
The best player for Dayton is undoubtedly its big man, who could go in the first round of the 2023 NBA Draft, DaRon Holmes II. Holmes boasts impressive rim protection on the defensive end of the floor and has developed his offensive skillset quite a bit; he’s averaging roughly 18 points, eight rebounds, and two blocks per game on 59% from the field as of early February.
Holmes isn’t the only Flyers player capable of scoring and crashing the boards at a high level, as 6-foot-8 forward Toumani Camara averages 14 points and nine boards. Camara and Holmes make up one of the best mid-major frontcourts in the nation.
Dayton scores well inside the paint, but has not found its rhythm from deep. The Flyers also turn the ball over too much to have a truly effective offensive attack. If they can clean up the turnovers and protect the ball, the Flyers can win the A-10 Conference Tournament.
It should come as no surprise that the VCU Rams are an elite defensive team. Including this season, the Rams have been top-tier defensively in each of the past three seasons.
This season, VCU has spent much of the year inside the top 25 in adjusted defensive efficiency, an impressive mark for a mid-major, as it is at a slight disadvantage in KenPom’s analytics. What makes the Rams so solid on that end of the floor is how many turnovers they force per game (17+), which is a mark only a handful of teams have matched this season.
Offensive, especially in the half-court, the Rams are borderline atrocious; they garner much of their offense through their defensive effort. Adrian Baldwin Jr keeps them afloat by averaging roughly 12 points and six assists. It does help, come conference tournament time, to have strong guard play, and VCU will need to lean heavily on Baldwin and Brandon Johns Jr for output.
The Saint Louis Billikens are a guard-heavy team that leans heavily on offensive output to win conference games. The Billikens’ four leading scorers are all guards who are 6-foot-6 and under (Gibson Jimerson, Yuri Collins, Javonte Perkins, and Javon Pickett.) Luckily, this approach has resulted in Saint Louis being the second-best offense in the A-10 behind only Dayton.
Collins and Jimerson are the two players for Saint Louis that are irreplaceable; they play 35 and 33 minutes per game, respectively, and lead the Billikens in scoring and three-point shooting. Further, Collins averages a double-double with points and assists. He leads the NCAA in assists per game, an incredibly impressive feat; no other player is within two assists (per game) of him.
Despite being undersized, the Billikens rebound the ball fairly well. Their biggest issue is far-and-away defense, as they barely squeak inside the top 150 in KenPom’s adjusted defensive efficiency. Saint Louis is not far off from taking the next step this season. The question at hand is, “will they take it?”
