The CAA Conference Championship stretches from March 6-9, with all games being played at the Atlantic Union Bank Center in Harrisonburg, Virginia on the campus of James Madison University. The tournament will have 10 teams, who will play single-elimination games with no reseeding.

The first two rounds of the tournament are available on FloHoops.com, a service that runs about $30 for a one-month subscription. The semifinals and final are on CBS Sports Network.

The Northeastern Huskies (9-8, 8-2 CAA) are the favorite despite being the No. 2 seed thanks to their season split with No. 1 seeded James Madison Dukes (13-6, 8-2 CAA). Northeastern sits at 167 in KenPom to 173 for James Madison, and the Huskies are No. 142 in the NCAA’s NET compared to No. 131 for the Dukes. Both those games were played at the Atlantic Union Bank Center on the fourth weekend in January.
