  • The Atlantic 10 conference tournament will get underway on Wednesday, Mar. 13 in Brooklyn at the Barclays Center with two first-round matchups.
  • Top overall seed and regular season champ VCU (-140) enters the tourney as the clear avorite to secure the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament.

It was a very down year in the Atlantic 10, which will likely only send one team to the tournament this season.

VCU comes in as the clear favorite to book a trip to the dance, and it has the only real shot at an at-large bid, but the A-10 tournament has teased VCU fans and futures holders in the past. While the Rams did win it in 2015, they have finished runner-up in four of the past six tournaments.

Davidson, the No. 2 seed, is the defending champion and Chaminade High School alumni Bob McKillop’s squad is certainly capable of another run in Brooklyn.

The bottom of the conference doesn’t have much of a shot, but there might be a team in the middle of the pack worth investing in if you’re seeking a potential sleeper in the futures market.

Let’s take a closer look at the field.
