Eight teams have opened their league slate, and the remaining six squads begin Atlantic 10 play Sunday in a quartet of nationally televised games. NBCSN will air a triple header, as has become an opening weekend tradition for the network, while ESPNU will carry the Rhode Island-Saint Louis game.

In a quirk of timing, the A-10 Players and Rookies of the Week will square off this weekend. Dayton and Richmond shared both the Co-Players of the Week (Josh Cunningham and Grant Golden) and the Co-Rookies of the Week (Obi Toppin and Jake Wojcik). Those four players meet on Sunday when Richmond opens conference play at Dayton

Dayton will welcome it’s 10 millionth fan into UD Arena Sunday. The Flyers are the 11th program in NCAA Division I history to surpass the 10 million mark. Since the start of the 2013-14 season, the league has won 37 games against teams that were ranked or receiving votes.
