William and Mary is terrible. Bottom team of the CAA. Three point shooting team who is not athletic at all. William and mary does not get athletic guys who can keep up with St. JOHN. I'm taking the big east here. Anybody with me?

Yeah I am. I really don't understand what all this love for William and Mary is all about. Someone fill me in please. I know st. Johns has a young team but I think they steel this one by 10+

probably b/c of the youth factor. St Johns has no one with any experience, although they are probably much more talented.  All of W&M top 5 scorers return. Even though they sucked last year, they have everyone back which could be bad for a team that has no one back

i think St. Johns is tough to back b.c of the fact they they only return 2 people who played at all LY.


W&M returns 5 players from LY's team that was bad, but dont be fooled , this team will be in the top 5 of the CAA this year with:

VCU
ODU
Hofstra
Drexel

I'm not on either team, but you must be new to college basketball betting.

It's not all about conference affiliation. And, where are you getting William & Mary as a bad CAA team? They probably won't compete with George Mason or ODU for a title, but this looks like a solid, middle of the pack team. Terrific defensive coach in Tony Shaver and an inverted, Princeton-style offense. They'll be much deeper this season and may look to run more frequently.

Last year's Tribe squad was one of the youngest in the country (#294). Not the case this season.

Hey guy,
NONE OF THAT MATTERS

St. Johns only has TWO players that were on scholarship last year, Their team is completely different from last year.

along with that, 3 of their Highly touted newcomers are ineligable,
and their head coach steve lavin is not with the team today.

just saying, get some better reasoning than CAA vs BigEast,

because capping these games are not that easy,...


BTW, W&M will probably finish 4th or 5th in CAA,
St Johns probably 10th or 11th in BE and lucky to get into NCAA tourney.

and if you did know what you were talking about you would never say W&M is the worst team in the CAA


you would have heard of TOWSON, who is wretched.

Yes towson is worse then William Mary. Except Towson has some nice recruits coming in.  ST. JOHNS BIG EAST ATHLETES over a bunch of white kids who can jack up threes.

I'll bet you the mortgage right now that George Mason finishes in the top 5 of the CAA.  Personally, I'm going to take the points with W&M.  St. John's is a 0 on the experience scale, and Lavin has had a ton of other things on his plate lately.  I don't see SJU coming out too polished tonight and think it could actually go right down to the wire.

Give Towson 2 years and they will contend for the CAA. New arena coming as well as transfers from Georgetown and South Florida. However, Towson is in first place in The toughest FCS football conference in the country.

St Johns beat a D3 team 77-70 last exhibition out. Bill and Mary will hang around tonight.

I like towson actually with a new head coach. The line moving is starting to scare me. Maybe the safest bet is the under
