How It All Shakes Out, Part Five

Saturday marks the final day of the regular season. In the case of a three-way tie between GW, St. Joseph's, and Fordham, the Colonials would hold the tiebreaker, and in the case of a four-way tie between GW, Rhode Island, St. Joseph's, and Fordham, the Colonials would also hold that tiebreaker. Therefore, the only way the Colonials can miss out on receiving a first round bye in the Atlantic 10 Tournament is by losing to Duquesne and watching all of the following happen: Rhode Island beat Richmond, Temple beat Fordham, and St. Joseph's beat Massachusetts.

1) Xavier (12-3)

Remaining: at LaSalle (3-12)
Hold tiebreaker over Massachusetts

1) Massachusetts (12-3)
Remaining: at St. Joseph's (9-6)
Lose tiebreaker to Xavier

3) George Washington (10-5)
Remaining: Duquesne (6-9)
Hold tiebreakers over Rhode Island and Fordham, lose tiebreaker to St. Joseph's

3) Rhode Island (10-5)
Remaining: at Richmond (3-12)
Hold tiebreaker over St. Joseph's, lose tiebreakers to George Washington and Fordham


5) Fordham (9-6)
Remaining:
Temple (6-9)
Hold tiebreakers over Rhode Island and St. Joseph's, lose tiebreaker to George Washington


5) St. Joseph's (9-6)
Remaining: Massachusetts (12-3)
Hold tiebreakers over George Washington and Rhode Island, lose tiebreaker to Fordham
