The first session of the Atlantic 10 quarterfinals will be taking place in the Barclays Center in Brooklyn this afternoon. The action starts at noon.
The first game will feature Richmond squaring off with No. 1 seed Dayton, who spent much of the season ranked in the top 25 before tailing off down the stretch of the regular season.
The second game of the session, which will begin about 30 minutes after the first game ends, will pit St. Bonaventure and George Washington. The Bonnies may have played their way into the NCAA tournament at this point, but a loss certainly wouldn’t help their cause. GW, on the other hand, probably needs to beat Bonaventure and Dayton in the semis to have a real chance of getting to the tournament.
