Bona picked last in A-10

As expected, St. Bonaventure was picked to finish in the cellar in the Atlantic 10 as the media and coaches are convinced that Mark Schmidt's new recruits will translate into wins immediately. Here's my prediction: Bona will surprise and finish in the middle of the pack. Here's the predicted order of finish:

1. Xavier (44)
2. Temple (12)
3. Dayton (3)
4. Saint Joseph’s
5. Charlotte (2)
6. Massachusetts
7. Saint Louis
8. Richmond
9. Rhode Island
10. La Salle
11. George Washington
12. Duquesne
13. Fordham
14. St. Bonaventure
