I completely agree. Should be top 8. I guess the A10 said when they talked about it that the schools didnt want to take away an opportunity given how tough of a year it was. The flip side is our NCAA possible teams are at further risk.If there was ever a year for the league to modify the tournament and kindly tell the bottom 4, or more, teams that it is best that they sit this one out, it is this year. Nothing good can come from having those teams at the conference tournament in normal years, but this year you can add risk of virus spread added to the mix.
Can you imagine Fordham making a mini-run (humor me), facing one of the top teams on the 3rd day of the tournament and knocking them out, not because they beat them, but because they had a positive Covid test and put the other team at risk?
I am sure it would be controversial, but it should be done.
