Richmond gets No. 4 seed in A-10 Tournament

Richmond (18-10, 9-5), which received a first-round bye and the No. 4 seed in the Atlantic 10 Tournament,  will meet either No. 5 Charlotte (21-8, 9-5) or No. 12 UMass (7-22, 3-11) in a quarterfinal game at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at the Tsongas Center in Lowell, Mass.

Defending champion Xavier defeated Temple on Sunday and is looking to win its fourth A-10 title in the last five years. A win by the Spiders would likely pit them against the Musketeers (25-2, 14-0) in Sunday's noon semifinals.

Richmond defeated UMass 89-63 on Jan. 12 and lost to Charlotte 73-62 on Jan. 26. The Spiders were beaten by Xavier, ranked sixth nationally, 79-57, on Feb. 9
