My Prediction: Dayton came into the A-10 tourney losing 3 straight and for some reason are starting to shoot the ball well. They had to hold off a poor St. Joe’s team yesterday and might be wearing out. Richmond is a bubble team that is on fire right now. They’ve won 6 in a row and have covered the spread in all 6. I think Richmond breaks open a close game at halftime and wins easily.
