Atlantic 10 Standings 2012 - Xavier Third With Two Tough Games Left

The Xavier Musketeers are currently in third place of the Atlantic 10 conference, but they still have some work to do if they want to get a top seed going into the Conference tournament starting on March 6.

Xavier's next game against the Saint Louis Billikins will test their mettle, being the third team in the conference facing the second team in the conference. Their last game against Charlotte will prove a bit easier, but the Saint Louis game could decide who finishes top three regardless of who wins the Charlotte game.

Currently, Xavier's three seed in the conference tournament would be good enough to earn them a bye. They would then play the winner of the game between the six and 11 seeds, currently held by Massachusetts and Charlotte. A win over Saint Louis and the Musketeers could be talking about holding the number one seed with a little bit of luck.

2012 Atlantic 10 Standings - Dayton Currently Seventh In Conference

The Dayton Flyers are looking to make some noise in this year's Atlantic 10 tournament after some great basketball has left them with an 18-10 overall record and 8-6 in conference. They still have two games to go, against the Richmond Spiders and the George Washington Colonials, and can finish a lot higher with a little bit of luck on their side.

Currently the Flyers are in seventh place of the conference, and with the conference tournament coming up starting on March 6 they'll want to get as high as seed as they possibly can.

The tournament layout would currently have Dayton playing the tenth seeded Richmond Spiders in the first round, with the winner taking on the second ranked Saint Louis Billikens. There's still plenty of basketball to be played of course, so Dayton will want to get one of those byes in the tourney if at all possible. And if not, they can practice against Richmond this week for a possible rematch in the tournament.
