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
