The Atlantic 10 Tournament heads into the semifinal round on Saturday after Friday's quarterfinals produced a surprising result with No. 8 seed Massachusetts upsetting the top seed Temple Owls in Atlantic City. The updated A-10 tournament bracket reveals the other top four seeds surviving to set up an exciting semifinal Saturday.
