MyBB CAA Coaches Use NBA As Selling Point

By most accounts, 2018-19 was a down season for the conference. And closing in on a decade since former member VCU made a run to the Final Four, the CAA has since become an annual one-bid league in the NCAA Tournament. Last season, the Colonial ranked No. 18 among 32 conferences on RealTimeRPI.com and 20th in Ken Sagarin’s computer rating, putting the CAA behind the Ivy League, MAC and Southern Conference in each.

But heading into next season, CAA coaches are quick to point out two things. First, the conference is tightly packed and competitive top to bottom. And second, it produces NBA talent.

RE: CAA Coaches Use NBA As Selling Point
Here are the ten most recent CAA players to play in the NBA off the top of my head with their about of NBA games. There could be more:

J.J. Barea (was Jose Juan Barea): 802
Kent Bazemore: 483
Gary Neal: 352
Troy Daniels: 292
Eric Maynor: 267
Larry Sanders: 238
Treveon Graham: 125
Charles Jenkins: 110
Jerrelle Benimon: 2
Joe Chealey: 1

Bazemore, Maynor, Jenkins, and Chealey are the only ones to play four seasons in the CAA. Maynor and Jenkins were the only ones to play four seasons in the CAA and win POY. Maynor, Jenkins, and Benimon were the only ones to win POY twice. Everyone else was on a team that joined or left the CAA, transferred to a CAA team, or in Sanders' case went to the NBA after three years in college. Even playing in the Final Four didn't help CAA players. George Mason didn't get anyone in the NBA, and Troy Daniels scored 55 points for VCU that season. Brett Blizzard won POY in 2001-2002 and 2002-2003, which were the first two seasons with the northern teams, and he has the CAA record for career three-pointers made, but he didn't make the NBA. He made 371 threes, and after he graduated Antoine Agudio took second with 357.
