My brief take on the CAA tournament: No team seeded lower than 3 has won this league in the last 10 years; that is surprising in this day and age of upsets. I would take James Madison to win this tournament as the 1 seed, but they lost star Matt Lewis for the season. So, I will go with 2 seed Northeastern, but I'd also watch out for 4 seed Hofstra to repeat. Enjoy!
