St. Bonaventure and Xavier will meet in the 2012 Atlantic 10 Championship on Sunday in a matchup that could have significant bubble implications. While it's unclear whether or not Xavier is in the field as an at-large, St. Bonaventure almost certainly needs a win and the automatic berth to make the NCAA Tournament. Should the Bonnies win, it's possible another bubble team gets knocked out of contention.
The Bonnies find themselves a player for the A-10's automatic bid after two close wins in the quarterfinal and semifinal rounds. St. Joe's was the first victim, with the Bonnies taking a 71-68 win to move on to the semifinals. On Saturday, St. Bonaventure knocked off UMass, who previously took out top-seeded Temple, to move to within one game of a certain NCAA Tournament bid.
Xavier's road to the A-10 title game almost ended before it began. In the quarterfinals, the Musketeers had to hang on tight for a one-point win over Dayton. But on Saturday, Xavier bounced back strong, cruising to a seven-point win over Saint Louis.
