St. Bonaventure is on the verge of making an NCAA bubble team very sad. The Bonnies lead Xavier 37-24 at halftime of the 2012 Atlantic 10 Championship on Sunday.
Andrew Nicholson has 12 points, five rebounds and two blocks to lead St. Bonaventure, which needs to snag this automatic berth to get into the NCAA tournament field (and shrink the bubble).
Meanwhile, Xavier guard Tu Holloway is doing what he can to keep the Musketeers in this one with 11 points, two assists and two rebounds. He's only missed two shots.
The biggest difference so far has been that Xavier -- outside of Holloway -- can't get its shots to go down. The Musketeers are shooting 36 percent from the floor and are 0-for-7 from three-point range. The Bonnies have hit five of their 11 three-point attempts.
