Atlantic Basketball Rankings 10 pre-season led by Dayton

As part of its coverage of the 2022–23 men’s basketball season, Sports Illustrated Previews are rolled out for each of the top 10 conferences. First up is the Atlantic Ocean 10.

Much of college basketball’s success is determined by investment, and recent moves across the Atlantic 10 League show an investment in huge success on the hardwoods. Look no further than the caliber of coaches (and the money for them) they brought in this off-season. The leaderboard is Frank Martin, who coached South Carolina to the Final Four and is at UMass. Archie Miller, who takes up Rhode Island with a resume that includes the Elite Eight while in Dayton; and Fran Dunphy, the Philadelphia legend who took La Salle’s job. But it goes beyond these three. Two very reputable young coaches at Drew Valentine and English Kim They ply their trade in this league, and some of the league’s top programs (VCU, Dayton and Saint Louis) all have a stable at the top. It’s all a recipe for success: public bids, NCAA championship wins, and more.
