How strong is the A-10?

Shaka Smart and VCU made waves in last year's NCAA tournament, but that doesn't seem to have brought the Atlantic 10 conference all that much respect. Smart defended the A-10 from Mike Krzyzewski, who said on Saturday that the conference had too many teams in the NCAA tournament. Krzyzewski believed that NC State should have gotten an at-large bid because of the relative strength of the ACC and A-10, but Smart said on Monday that there's no point in comparing leagues in terms of tournament seeding. It's not as though the A-10's teams are sneaking into the tournament -- out of the six teams, the lowest winning percentage (Dayton) is .696

What do you make of the number of teams (six) the A-10 conference sent to the NCAA tournament?
