My brief take on the A-10 tournament: This tournament is usually pretty wild with upsets as you can see above. The 1-seed has only won it once in the last 10 years! So, I will go with the 4-seed St. Louis to win it; they were the preseason favorite after all. COVID slowed their season down more than most, but they seem to be playing well now. Also, crazy enough, the 13-seed St. Joseph's has won 3 in a row going into the tournament and is a team to watch. Legitimately, the only teams I would for sure count on off having a chance to win this thing are George Washington, LaSalle, and Fordham. I could easily see this being a title game featuring two middle to lower seeds. It should be fun. Enjoy!
