2012 Atlantic 10 Tournament Championship, St. Bonaventure Vs. Xavier: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

Sunday's 2012 Atlantic 10 Championship pits St. Bonaventure against Xavier, with the Bonnies looking to upset the Musketeers and steal the league's automatic bid, causing much consternation for bubble teams around the land. It is already believed Xavier will be in the field come selection time, but St. Bonaventure would not be an at-large candidate and needs a win in the title game to go dancing.

The Bonnies feature the Atlantic 10 Player of the Year in Andrew Nicholson, who some feel is a potential NBA draft pick. Xavier will answer with Tu Holloway and Mark Lyons, seasoned guards who make the Musketeers offense go.

Here what you need to know for Sunday's Atlantic 10 Tournament Championship:

Richmond Vs. La Salle Recap: Spiders Bow Out In First Round Of Atlantic 10 Tournament

The Richmond Spiders disappointing 2011-2012 season came to an end on Tuesday night with an 80-72 loss in Philadelphia to La Salle. While the Spiders are heading home for the season, the Explorers advance to face Saint Louis in Atlantic City.

The Spiders hung with La Salle until the Explorers went on a quick strike 9-0 run at the five minute mark to extend their lead to 15 and essentially seal the win. John Giannini's club was hot from the outside, hitting eight of 17 from behind the arc for 47 percent. Ramon Galloway led La Salle with 17 points, hitting four three-pointers to bring the crowd alive at Tom Gola arena.

Darien Brothers had a huge game for Richmond, hitting four threes of his own and finishing with 31 points. But Brothers did not have a lot of help on the outside, as the Spiders finished the game under 30 percent from three-point range. Some felt the ten-seeded Spiders could go on a magical run and play their way into the dance, but it was not to be as a disappointing season came to a quick end.

George Washington Vs. Dayton Recap: Colonials Season Ends In First Round Of Atlantic 10 Tournament

Mike Lonergan's inaugural season at George Washington came to and end on Tuesday night, as his Colonials bowed out in the first round of the Atlantic 10 tournament with a 67-50 loss to the Dayton Flyers. The Flyers are squarely on the bubble, battling for their tournament lives and the Colonials were playing in a notoriously tough road environment.

GW was ice cold from outside all evening, hitting just three of 14 from behind the arc. David Pellom led all scorers with 18 points off the bench, but Lonergan's go-to-guys Lasan Kromah and Tony Taylor simply could not get anything going offensively. Taylor was just three of 11 from the floor and finished with just six points in his final game for the Colonials. The Flyers shot better than 50 percent from the floor which was more than enough with the defensive effort they put on GW.

The Colonials finish the season at 10-21 while the Flyers will move on to face arch rival Xavier in Atlantic City.

Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament, La Salle Vs. Richmond: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The Richmond Spiders will begin their defense of their Atlantic 10 Tournament title when they square off against seventh-seeded La Salle on the road on Tuesday night. This year's Spiders squad is a far cry from the one that won the Atlantic 10 and reached the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament, but the few remaining players still have that experience to rely on as they try to shock the conference.

The Spiders tied for ninth in the conference with Duquense with a 7-9 record, but lost the tiebreaker. The Spiders have won three of their last four, however, and also defeated the Explorers, 78-76, on February 8. Here is more information about the game.

Game Date/Time: Tuesday, March 6, 7 p.m. ET

Venue: Tom Gola Arena

TV: Atlantic 10 All-Access.

Atlantic 10 Tournament 2012 Bracket, Schedule And More: Richmond Seeded 10th

Defending Atlantic 10 Conference Tournament champion Richmond has fallen on hard times this year, sinking all the way to the No. 10 seed in the 2012 bracket. The Spiders finished just 16-15 this year and 7-9 in the conference, and they will face No. 7 seed La Salle in the opening round of the tournament on Tuesday.

The Spiders are playing well at the right time, though, having won three of their last four games, including wins over No. 5 seed St. Joseph's and No. 6 seed Dayton.
