Colonial Athletic Association
The CAA has now become the premier mid-major league in college basketball. After sending two different schools to the Final Four in the past five seasons, the separation between the conference and its counterparts is annually escalating to a different level.
Frank Hassell scored 22 points and second-seeded Old Dominion earned the right to defend its Colonial Athletic Association tournament championship with a 77-69 victory against Hofstra in the semifinals on Sunday.
Charles Jenkins scored 32 points and had eight assists as Hofstra defeated George Mason 87-74 on Wednesday night to move into first place in the Colonial Athletic Association.
