They probably are behind the SEC, but as far as the other two, I definitely disagree. They aren't just top-heavy. Aside from Temple (a big contender this year), Xavier (always a contender), Dayton and Richmond (both also made the tourney last year), UMass (5-0), La Salle (4-2 with losses in tight games with Baylor and Missouri, both ranked) and Rhode Island (4-2, with one of those losses being a close game against Pitt) are all also pretty impressive this year.

Compared to the MWC (with SDST, BYU and UNLV being the only real tourney contenders, and a few other good teams in Utah, Air Force and NM), and the Pac 10 with a handful of good teams...I think the A10 has a slight edge.
