Richmond has been a Cinderella in March before but this year they have not been great. Their only chance of advancing to the Big Dance is to win out this weekend.
On the other hand Dayton is probably the one team in the league that does not have to be great this weekend. Their ticket should already be punched.
The Atlantic 10 is an underrated conference generally and now is a chance to see how competitive and quality it is.
The Spiders took care of business in their opening round game knocking off Fordham which finished just ahead of them in the standings.
Richmond will look to outscore opponents with the duo of T.J. Cline and Terry Allen. They are one of two teams in the league that have a pair of scorers in the top ten. Shawndre Davis scored 17 in their win over the Rams and he is a pretty good third option at 15ppg.
Cline is an interesting player because even though he is a power forward he leads the team in assists on the season. They might look like versatility on the surface but I worry that the guard play is not good enough for this group to advance too far.
The last time these two teams played the Spiders lost by a point on their home floor. Perhaps they know how to keep pace with the Racers and can keep the pressure on.
Richmond may not be a threat this season but this is a proud program that I do not expect to roll over.
The Flyers finished in three way tie atop the Atlantic Ten this season at 14-4. They have proven to be able to peak this time of year.
This is one of the better coached teams in America. Archie Miller has them playing well as a unit, taking advantage of their strengths including playing good defense.
The one thing this group does not have though is any real muscle inside. They only have a couple of players with an real bulk and that can be a disadvantage in some matchups.
The core of this team has as much experience as any team in the country though. DyShawn Pierre, Charles Cooke and Scoochie Smith have been a big part of recent runs and are looking to get even deeper into March this season.
Dayton is likely already in the field but a strong finish over the weekend will get them an easier seed that could facilitate an even longer run.
