Gotta think UNCW faithful would easily make that trip

Isn't Charleston closer?

Yep, and it's also being abandoned by the CAA for the glorious Washington DC

Yeah, that's silly. No one wants to go to DC in March.
DC and Asheville both take roughly the same time though to commute form Wilmington. 5 1/2 hours

but one is a fairly straight shot with little to no traffic while the other involves traffic from hell once you get past Richmond

Yeah DC sucks, no way around that. Asheville weather in March can suck though too. I think it snowed during their tourney weekend last year.
Discussions like these where i really wish Wilmington would man up with an arena, and be able to host things like this!

DC sounds good on paper IMO. I plan on giving that site a chance. My problem with the tournament is it ends on Tuesday. Wish the final would go back to being on a Monday with the majority of the tournament being played on the weekend.

RE: CAA History Lesson
UNCW is not going to join the SoCon.

1. They enjoy one of the highest out of state applications in the enitre UNC system. Mostly from the northern states where the CAA footprint lies. We get some name recognition in that region that we would not get in the SoCon.

2. The academic recognition of the CAA schools is far superior to the SoCon.

3. The size of schools in the CAA is on par with the UNCW.

If I could wave a wand and make any change I wanted, i'd add Campbell and UNCG to make the CAA a NC centric conference with an easy set of travel partners. UNCG, Campbell and Elon are all really close to the Virginia border to boot. Could also play the CAA tournament at the Greensboro coliseum

Campbell has a pretty big following and is really close to Raleigh. They are a rising star in NC and already have almost 7,000 students. They also have a football team.

UNC Greeensboro is in the largest city on the East Coast that doesn't have a college affiliated with a top tier conference. They have about 17,000 students.

This would set up a really nice two division conference

CofC, UNCW, UNCG, Campbell, Elon, W&M(longest drive would be Charleston to Williamsburg at 7 hours. All other drives under 4:30.)

Towson, NU, Hofstra, Delaware, JMU, Drexel (Boston to Harrisonburg longest drive 9 hours, all others under 6:30)

Face it, there are only two Virginia schools left. North Carolina is the best place to make the heart of the conference and the best place to add schools. This set up would make a really good travel schedule for everyone in the conference.

I like it. We’re long overdue to get this league a North and South Division with reasonable travel schedules. Play everyone in your division twice plus having the option to have 2 travel partners in the other division, giving each team either 16 or 18 league games.
