Sunday's championship in Atlantic City whittles down a bracket of 12 Atlantic 10 Conference basketball teams to the two mightiest. A precursor to the nation's annual March Madness, the conference tourney has much at stake, including an automatic bid to the NCAA's Big Dance and an autographed low-five from Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. For A-10 leaders, the conference crown only confirms their season's worth of domination, as is the case with the St. Louis Billikens and the Temple Owls, who, thanks to the backcourt tandem of Ramone Moore and Khalif Wyatt, have slashed to the bucket for an in-conference-leading 75.5 points per game.
But for a middle-of-the-roader like UMass or straight-up underdog George Washington, the tournament is a shot at redemption—a chance to bolt into the NCAAs and wear the coveted glass high-tops of Cinderella. The winner of Sunday's final round will hoist their trophy and punch their ticket to the Madness, both while under Boardwalk Hall's appropriately epic 137-foot-high barrel vault ceiling.
