VCU addition

Written by Jenn Menendez on .

Update 1:30 p.m.: VCU will join the A-10 next season, bringing the league to 15 teams for the 2012-13 season.


The Atlantic 10 will hold a conference call at 2:30 p.m. to answer questions about news that Virginia Commonwealth will be joining the Atlantic 10, as CBS Sports first reported Monday.

The move is the second major addition in a matter of weeks.

Who knew the A-10 would turn out to be such a winner in the game of conference realignment?

After losing Temple, the league added Butler. After losing Charlotte, they add VCU.

The A-10 will be back to 14 teams, and will now include a pair of newcomers that have run to the Final Four a combined three times in the last few years.
