The 2012 Atlantic 10 Tournament bracket and schedule is set, and Dayton will be the No. 6 seed when action gets underway on Tuesday. The Flyers finished in a four-way tie for fifth place in the conference at 9-7, ultimately earning a higher seed that La Salle and Massachusetts, but a lower seed than St. Joseph's. The Flyers will open at home on Tuesday against No. 11 seed George Washington. The game time has not been announced.
The Flyers currently have an outside chance at an NCAA Tournament berth, as they sit as one of the "Next Four Out" in SBNation.com's latest Bracketology. If the Flyers win on Tuesday, they will face No. 3 seed Xavier on Friday night. Multiple wins are likely needed to get an at-large berth.
