Atlantic 10 Tournament 2012: Bracket, Schedule And More, Xavier Eyes Title

After a roller coaster season marred by an on-court brawl with cross-town rival Cincinnati, the Xavier Musketeers are just 40 minutes away from earning an automatic bid into the NCAA tournament, as they take on St. Bonaventure in the Atlantic 10 tournament final today.

Xavier, who finished the regular season 10-6 in conference play and was seeded third in the tournament, advanced to the finals by upsetting second-seeded St. Louis 71-64 in the semifinals. The Musketeers will now take on a St. Bonaventure squad that they defeated 77-64 earlier in the season, but one that is playing excellent basketball heading into today's final.

The tip is set for 1:00 p.m. EST, with the winner to earn a bid to the NCAA tournament. The game can be seen on CBS.
