2012 CAA Tournament: the teams

This weekend, 12 very different teams will face off in the Richmond Coliseum. While all 12 teams are chasing the Colonial Athletic Association title and an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament that comes with it, each team has a different story.

The VCU Rams outpace W&M

After losing consecutive games in the beginning of January to conference foes Drexel and Georgia State, the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams have won eight straight. Wednesday night William & Mary connected on twelve three-pointers, but VCU’s offense led the Rams to an 87-78 victory in Williamsburg to help the Rams move into first place in the CAA.

What to expect: VCU at William & Mary, an emotional rematch

Unlike last time, the Rams will look to destroy an inferior William & Mary team as they try to keep pace with CAA-leading George Mason (18-5, 10-1).

Unexpected thriller on Broad Street

With Georgia State losing on Wednesday night and a matchup with CAA-leading Old Dominion on Saturday, Thursday night’s game was a must win for the Virginia Commonwealth University Rams. Entering the game, William & Mary was undoubtedly the worst team that Rams had played all year. It took overtime, but the VCU Rams escaped 69-68.
