La Salle over SLU today - 15-12 in the 5th. Interesting.

Dayton and VCU still look like favorites, but the middle of the A-10 made significant improvements this year. The biggest improvements in the conference were probably SLU and GW, while 2019 La Salle has played a little better than 2018 La Salle.

If the Sunday match where La Salle bested SLU is any indication, I'm not sure having the #1 will provide much of an advantage over having the #2 seed. I think teams 3-5 are all pretty close in terms of talent and capability. SLU looks like they will be #3 and La Salle looks like they will be #4 or #5. I think the ceiling for both SLU and La Salle is a surprise upset over Dayton or VCU if SLU/La Salle give 100% and UD/VCU aren't prepared.

You are splitting hairs, but La Salle might be more dangerous than SLU. La Salle has 6 seniors and has a win over Villanova (current RPI #51), just higher than Dayton (current RPI #50) I think there is always more chance of an upset when you are playing a rival and La Salle and Villanova are so close geographically. The seniors of La Salle are very familiar with Dayton and VCU. So even if La Salle over Villanova is a rivalry outlier, a La Salle win against UD or VCU would fall into the same category.

The team that showed up in our first two sets looked like the best team we had played in the A10, but they did not the last two sets. Team A must have showed up.
