Most pressing questions in the Atlantic 10 Tournament

Dayton has won just one A-10 Tournament game in the last four years. The Flyers were the No. 1 seed in 2016, but fell in the semis. They were the No. 1 seed again in 2017, but lost to No. 9 seed Davidson. A Thursday eight-nine game loss to VCU followed in 2018 before a quarterfinal loss to No. 6 Saint Louis in their only game last season.

The Bonnies (19-12, 11-7 A-10) dropped to the fifth seed with the loss and will open A-10 Tournament play at Barclays Center on Thursday at 2:30 p.m. against the winner of Wednesday’s George Mason v.s. St. Joseph’s contest. If the Bonnies get past the Patriots or Hawks, they will get another shot at Saint Louis on Friday in the quarterfinal round, just six days removed from Saturday’s rout.

The Bonnies responded as well as they could have from their first losing streak of the season with a healthy Osun Osunniyi, leading wire-to-wire in a decisive 89-73 win to improve to 19-11, 11-6 in the A-10. Five Bonnies scored in double figures, while Dominick Welch and Justin Winston scored 20 apiece to share the team scoring high.

In the last six seasons, which have seen them win at least 10 A-10 contests each go-around, the Bonnies have 17 home-and-home sweeps, six home-and-home splits and five home-and-home 0-fers. Duquesne knows the receiving end well; the Dukes have been swept the last three years and haven’t defeated Bonaventure since Jan. 16, 2016.
