Because they're very similar to what we were jumping from the CAA to the A10. They're now 2 seasons removed from a very good NCAA Tourney run (2021 they went to the Sweet 16... after their F4 run in 2018). Last year they won their conference tournament (just as we did in 2012)... only difference is they got bounced in the Round of 64 where as we got bounced in the round of 32 in 2012.
They've def made a name for themselves.... just as we did in 2011 & 2012... so they're prob getting decent recruits.
And while they got a new HC for last season after Porter Moser left (the one who led them to the Final 4 in 2018 & Sweet 16 in 2021)..he got them back to the NCAA tournament again last year.
There's no reason to think they won't come in & be a force right away. Heck look at us coming into the A10. And right away we came in and made our presence known... there's no reason to think Loyola cant do the same possibly.
Same could be said for Davidson too, I believe.
