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. Last year, the Spiders used their Atlantic 10 Tournament title to propel them to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. This year, the goals are probably more modest.

Here's a complete Atlantic 10 Tournament schedule.
