Atlantic 10 Basketball Standings 2012: La Salle In Eighth Place As Season Hits Final Stretch

Heading into February, the La Salle Explorers were primed for a first-round bye in the 2012 Atlantic 10 Men's Basketball Tournament at 6-2 in conference play. They are just 1-5 over their last six games, however. Now at 7-7, the Explorers are in eighth place overall, and will in all likelihood be playing on the first day of the tourney.

If the season ended today, La Salle would tip off against the ninth-place Duquesne Dukes in the first round for the right to play the 1-seed Temple Owls. The Explorers are currently 1.5 games out of fourth place, and would need a lot of help to move up with every team in the league having at most two games left to play. They close the regular season with the Charlotte 49ers on Wednesday and the St. Louis Billikens on Saturday.

Atlantic 10 Standings 2012: St. Joseph's In Fifth Place With One Game Left

The St. Joseph's Hawks recorded a crucial win over the No. 23 Temple Owls last Saturday. The win put them within striking distance of a first round bye in the 2012 Atlantic 10 Men's Basketball Tournament, at just half a game behind the St. Bonaventure Bonnies and the Xavier Musketeers.

Luckily for the Hawks, they will face the Bonnies on the road in their season finale. A win, coupled with a loss by the UMass Minutemen in one of their final two conference games, would give St. Joe's the 4-seed and an extra day to prep for the winner of the 5/12 game.
