A person familiar with the decision says VCU is joining the Atlantic 10 after deciding to leave the Colonial Athletic Association.

The person spoke to The Associated Press Tuesday on condition of anonymity because the move has not been publicly announced.

VCU has scheduled a 1:30 p.m. press conference Tuesday and the Atlantic 10 has scheduled a teleconference for later this afternoon.

The timetable for the move remains unclear though CBSSports.com reported Monday VCU will join the Atlantic 10 in 2013.

CAA Commissioner Tom Yeager says CAA bylaws provide that a team leaving the league immediately becomes ineligible for the conference basketball tournament. The tournament is played down the street from VCU's home arena, and has attracted record crowds in recent years with VCU among the favorites.
