Atlantic 10 Basketball Tournament, La Salle Vs. Richmond: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

Seventh-seeded La Salle will host 10th-seeded Richmond Tuesday night in a first round matchup in the Atlantic 10 Tournament. The winner earns the right to face No. 2 Saint Louis in the quarterfinals on Friday in Atlantic City.

Richmond, the tournament champion a season ago, enters the postseason with a disappointing record of 16-15, including a 7-9 mark in league play. The Spiders will come to Philadelphia with a bit of momentum, however, having won three of their final four regular season games.

La Salle (20-11, 9-7) faltered a bit in February, beginning the month with five losses in six games before winning back-to-back games to end the regular season. It has still been one of the more successful seasons in recent memory for the Explorers, who have hit the 20-win mark for the first time since 1991-92. That year is also the last time they made the NCAA Tournament.

La Salle is first in the conference and seventh in the NCAA in three-point shooting (40.3 percent) and average 7.9 treys per game. They are third in the A-10 in forcing turnovers (15.9 per game) and in points allowed (65.5). The Explorers struggle mightily on the glass, however, which was extremely evident in a 78-76 February loss to Richmond where they were outrebounded 45-24.

Tip-off between La Salle and Richmond is slated for 7 p.m. ET.
