0

It was a crazy awesome week here in Pittsburgh full of upsets, clutch performances, and downright high-level basketball. Here’s how it all went down, as told through the tweets of A10Talk and Atlantic 10 fans everywhere.

Wednesday – Round 1

We arrived in beautiful PGH to get our first glimpse of the host venue, PPG Paints Arena!

Duquesne’s Mike Lewis II came to play…

but the Dukes fans didn’t seem too excited about the future.

Thursday – Round 2

Better check that hardware…

Our meme game >>> (insert fire emoji)

Cats are wild…?

Peyton Aldridge set a PPG Paints Arena record with 33 points!

Bona was as hype as ever…

and major news broke about a leadership change within UMass.

Meanwhile, GMU sent their game to OT on this sweet dish…

…and Yuta Watanabe capped off a GW come from behind win.

Plus, made it on TV!

Friday – Quarterfinals

The Flyer Faithful showed out big,

but Jack Gibbs showed out even bigger!

ALL BALL

The senior enjoyed his last A-10 tourney…

…as VCU rolled to victory.

JeQuan also had some fun after the game!


Richmond barely outlasted George Washington on the final possession.

Rhody was ready out of the gates…

especially Coach Hurley!

Saturday – Semifinals

Davidson and their fans prepped to take on Rhode Island…

but the Rams were RED-HOT from deep.

We said goodbye to an A-10 legend,

and said hello to a star in the making.


Richmond almost had this game…

but VCU closed it out in OT.


The A-10 POY will be missed.

Sunday – A-10 Championship

The final game tipped off on Selection Sunday…

…and Rhode Island was playing no games.

Neither was Hassan Martin!

After a hard-fought battle, Rhody came out on top!

Coach Hurley took in the moment.

And the best part, we’re not done yet!!

Here’s to another couple weeks of A-10 basketball! Next stop, Phoenix, for the Final Four!

Share.
