Rather than just looking at the three teams with the best road record and the teams that played in the Final, I think you should look at the whole CAA Tournament. Find all the games where the better seed had the worse road record and look at which team won more often.

I agree. You should give your two weeks notice so you can provide this invaluable information to posters on a message board.

Hard pass on that but thanks.

RE: CAA Road Record and CAA Tournament success: Does it matter?
Whether it matters or not, here are the facts this year.

Tribe 3-12 in away games is their Achilles heel as a #4 seed. JMU is 3-13, Delaware 3-12, Drexel 4-14, Hofstra 6-7, Northeastern 7-10, Elon 6-8, Towson 6-8, CofC 10-4, UNCW 11-3.

Looking at these records, there is a clear distinction in the CAA between the teams that have done well away from home and those who haven't. William and Mary is in a tier with JMU, Delaware and Drexel with their inability to win away from home. NU, Elon and Towson are in the middle, and UNCW and CofC are at the top.

The difference between the top tier and bottom tier is drastic, and I cannot discount that difference since every team will have to win at least three away game to take the championship. College of Charleston is playing in their home city, but not at their regular arena. Fan support will be in their favor over everyone else, but they won't be shooting at their "home" rims. Also, don't discount the fan support UNCW will have. It will be far greater than any away game that takes place during the regular season. From what I know, all ticket allotments are sold out and all room bookings are sold out as well. I think the number of UNCW fans in Charleston will shock a lot of people.

Bumping this to shamelessly pat myself on the back. Also props to 82 for pointing out additional info.

The 2 most "mentally tough" teams made the final.
