A-10 predictions roundup: Saint Louis favored by most

Dayton picked as high as fourth and as low as 10th

Based on the early rankings, Saint Louis, George Mason and St. Joseph’s are the favorites. No one really knows where to rank Dayton, Virginia Commonwealth, Massachusetts and most of the teams in the middle.

Last year’s top-two teams in the regular season, Rhode Island and St. Bonaventure, are expected to fall in the standings. The defending A-10 tournament champion, Davidson, should contend for the title. And La Salle, George Washington and Fordham are expected to bring up the rear of the conference. 

Here is my prediction from April and some others that have come out recently:

David Jablonski: 1. Saint Louis; 2. George Mason; 3. St. Joseph’s; 4. Dayton; 5. Davidson; 6. Richmond; 7. Massachusetts; 8. Rhode Island; 9. Virginia Commonwealth; 10. St. Bonaventure; 11. Duquesne; 12. La Salle; 13. George Washington; 14. Fordham.
