Richmond Spiders

2012-13: 19-15 (8-8 A-10)
In-conference offense: 1.06 points per possession (8th)
In-conference defense: 1.04 points allowed per possession (11th)

There isn't better evidence of the Atlantic 10's depth than the fact that Richmond could finish eighth or worse. The Spiders certainly have the ability to be much better than that.
