William and Mary is coming off an 18 win regular season. For a school not known as a basketball powerhouse, that ranks in the top five in school history for wins. It has earned them a number three seed in the CAA Tournament. They play the College of Charleston in the opening game.
The Tribe is one of a handful of schools to have played D1 basketball for over twenty years and not make the NCAA Tournament. With VCU, George Mason and ODU gone from the conference and with William and Mary playing great basketball, this could be their best chance to advance.
