Report: VCU And George Mason To Join Atlantic 10 On May 1

On May 1, George Mason and VCU will be leaving the Colonial Athletic Association to join the Atlantic 10 Conference. This according to Lenn Robbins of the New York Post.

Robbins added that Butler will “probably” be joining the conference as well. The Bulldogs are currently a member of the Horizon League.

This report comes less than a month after both VCU and George Mason vehemently denied that they had been in talks with the A-10.

If the report is true, adding the two perennial Colonial powerhouses would greatly bolster the strength of the A-10. The CAA, meanwhile, would unquestionably lose any claim it may have had on the title of best mid-major conference in college basketball.
