But Wait - There's More!

Mid-American Preview

2001-02 Mid-American Conference Preview by Brian Seymour Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past ten years or living in the obviously under-oxygeniated hotel room where the NCAA selection committee annually selects schools for the 64-team tournament, you know that the Mid-American Conference plays some great basketball. To […]

Metro Atlantic Preview

2001-02 Metro Atlantic Conference Preview by Adam Shandler The NCAA selection committee might take some pity on the MAAC this year and toss them an extra bid to the tourney. But they’ve got to earn it. In the early going, it’s hard not to like Iona but Canisius, Manhattan, Niagara […]

Horizon League Preview

2001-02 Horizon League Preview by Brian Seymour While doing research on the Internet, I had to jump through dozens of hoops — no pun intended — to get information about the Horizon League, which is evidence of a conference with a serious identity problem. Of course, part of the identity […]

Ivy League Preview

2001-02 Ivy League Preview by Adam Shandler Attention Ivy Leaguers: Anybody? Anybody? Anybody other than Princeton and Penn? Yeah, yeah, yeah, you want me to say Penn or Princeton is going to win the Ivy and then move on with “yada yada” reports about the also-rans. Can’t say I blame […]

One of the few conferences to have never won an NCAA tournament game […]

Colonial Preview

2001-02 Colonial Athletic Ass’n Preview by Adam Shandler So, anyway, I’ve been asked by my editor-on-high to write up a nice little preview for the Colonial Athletic Conference. Don’t think I didn’t see you roll your eyes! Hey, don’t sleep on the mid-majors. This conference has at least 2 teams […]

America East Preview

2001-02 America East Preview by Lon Samuelson Just last March the America East Conference was working its way up the Conference RPI ratings by hovering around 17. Unfortunately, all hopes were dashed this past summer when a mass exodus occurred, leaving the conference with 3 newcomers and 4 strong teams […]

Atlantic 10 Preview

2001-02 Atlantic 10 Conference Preview by Lon Samuelson Many may mistake the Atlantic-10 (once the A-11, and now the A-12 w/former Colonial power Richmond) for a revolving door in coaching ranks. More then half of the league has someone new at the helm (LaSalle, GWU, URI, Saint Bonaventure, Duquesne, Xavier, […]
