Atlantic 10 Tournament Bracket Semifinals Preview

The quarterfinals of the A-10 tournament started with two upsets, but the final two games went as as expect as Dayton, St. Joe’s, Temple & Richmond all advanced to the semifinals.

Dayton probably took the toughest road to the semis having to go through the tournament’s #1 seed, Xavier. However, in this round they’ll be taking on the tournament’s lowest seed in St. Joe’s. The Hawks barely qualified for the tournament as the #12 seed, but now that they’re here Phil Martelli has his young Hawks playing well with two upsets already under their belt. Dayton beat St. Joes 65-59 back on January 12th.

Temple faces Richmond in the other semifinal in a matchup of the #2 and # seeds in the tournament. The Owls are looking to win their fourth straight conference tournament and 11th A-10 tourney game in a row. Richmond will be looking to shore up their credentials for the big dance with a win over a top 25 team. The Owls beat the Spiders by twenty when they last met in mid February.
