NOTABLE

The Atlantic 10 is one of just two conferences with four teams that have reached 19 or more wins. The ACC also has four 19-win teams.

Saint Louis, which has won a record 16 straight, moved up to 12 in both polls this week. George Washington continues to receive votes in both polls, while UMass and VCU are earning votes in the Coaches’ Poll. Dayton was ranked earlier this season and La Salle and Saint Joseph’s received votes, meaning seven A-10 teams have been ranked or received votes this season.

In the latest Bracketologies, Jerry Palm of CBSSports.com have five A-10 teams in his bracket (UMass, Richmond Saint Louis, VCU, George Washington) and her lists Dayton among his first four out. ESPN’s Joe Lunardi has four A-10 teams in the Big Dance (UMass, Saint Louis, VCU, George Washington) with Saint Joseph’s on the bubble.

The Atlantic 10 completed its non-conference schedule by winning 71 percent of those non-league games. A-10 teams also have registered six wins over ranked teams and 16 wins against the big five conferences (ACC, Big 10, Big 12, SEC, Pac-12).

The A-10 has nine of its 13 teams in the top 90 of the RPI ratings, six teams in the RPI top 50 and seven teams in the top 68 (NCAA Tournament field size). The league also ranks sixth among all conferences in the RPI and has nine teams in the top 100 of the Pomeroy ratings and eight in the Sagarin Ratings top 100.
