CAA commissioner: Baltimore fine for tourney

In searching for a home for the Colonial Athletic Association tournament, Commissioner Tom Yeager had one overriding priority: location.

The league settled on committing to Baltimore for three years, and Yeager expressed no regret after the CAA wrapped up its first tournament in Charm City on Monday night.

It got off to a slow start.

CAA officials said attendance over the weekend was just over 19,000, and an announced crowd of 5,414 watched Delaware beat William & Mary in the championship.

Those numbers pale compared to the 47,833 that came to Richmond in 2012, but that might be because this tournament had three fewer teams.

Yeager remains optimistic.

He says, "It's going to take some time to build it, but there isn't any criticism that we have about anything."
