Virginia Commonwealth University has called a press conference for 1:30 p.m. in Richmond. The school is expected to announce that it is leaving the Colonial Athletic Association for the Atlantic 10 Conference, joining the Butler Bulldogs in that conference.
VCU has been a member of the CAA since 1995, when they joined after being shut out of the merger between the Metro and Great Midwest Conferences that formed Conference USA.
In their time as a CAA member, the VCU men's basketball team won 5 Colonial Athletic Association regular season and tournament championships and made the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament six times, making the Final Four in 2011.
