Highlights: Hofstra's Estrada Goes For 40

The Colonial Athletic Association holds its conference tournament this week as 13 teams head to Washington D.C. to play for the automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament that begins on March 14 with the First Four in Dayton, Ohio.  

It’s been a strong year for CAA Basketball as College of Charleston, the No. 2 seed in the conference tournament, spent several weeks in the AP top 25 and at one point two CAA teams, CofC and UNC Wilmington, had the nation’s two longest winning streaks. Meanwhile Hofstra, coached by former NBA star Speedy Claxton, received the league's No. 1 seed because of it's win over Charleston this season. 

Hofstra also has Aaron Estrada, who is poised to win CAA Player of the Year for the second straight season.

Charleston and Hofstra tied for the league's regular season title by going 16-2 in conference play, but Hofstra enters the tournament as the league’s No. 1 seed.

Here’s what to know about this Week’s schedule.

How Many CAA Basketball Teams Will Make The 2023 NCAA Tournament?

Outside the automatic bid, the chances of a CAA team receiving an at-large bid are not great. The CAA is traditionally a one-bid league, but if ever there was a year the conference could send multiple teams, this would be it. 

Hoftsra and Charleston both had tremendous seasons, with the Cougars going 28-3 and the Pride 23-8. Four teams in the conference, Wilmington and Towson being the other two, won at least 20 games this season. Charleston and Hofstra are also ranked in the top 100 at Kenpom.com
