Drexel clinched the No. 5 seed in the CAA tournament Thursday, and managed to extinguish one of the few remaining seeding issues for the seven-team event.
All that's left to determine is whether George Mason or James Madison will be the No. 3 seed in the March 9-11 event in Richmond.
The rundown on the seeding scenarios:
Northeastern (14-3) has clinched the No. 1 seed and will have a bye to the CAA semifinals.
