“Yeager won’t discuss potential candidates, but the strongest basketball additions seem to be in the South. Yeager declined to comment on an ESPN.com report that quoted Southern Conference commissioner John Iamarino as saying Yeager had contacted him about talking to some of his schools, presumably Davidson, the College of Charleston and Appalachian State, a football power.
There also are Coastal Carolina (Big South) in basketball and football, and, at the northern end, Boston University (America East) as a basketball addition.”
As far as basketball is concerned, none of those schools discussed above are like ODU and VCU. CAA will be a dwarf of its former self, if it survives.
