2012 Atlantic 10 Tournament: Bracket, Schedule And More: Dayton And Xavier Square Off In The Quarterfinals

In the opening round of the Atlantic 10 Tournament on Tuesday, the higher seed won in each of the four games, setting up a quarterfinals of seed one through eight on Friday night in Atlantic City.

The most intriguing matchup is most likely the night cap between Dayton and Xavier, in which a loss will probably burst the bubble for either team. Xavier is currently among the last four teams in the tournament in Joe Lunardi's latest projection, while Dayton is still considered a bubble team, but will need multiple wins to pad their resume.

Here's a complete 2012 Atlantic 10 Tournament schedule.
