March Madness: Grading the Atlantic 10 Teams' Performances

It's been a bizarre season for the Atlantic 10 to say the least.

The conference was at a crossroads, with two schools entering the fold (Butler and VCU), two lame duck schools who had already pledged their futures elsewhere (Temple and Charlotte) and two schools who would decide late in the year that the 2012-13 season would be their last in the A-10 (Butler and Xavier).

Yet through all the turmoil, the conference was better than it's been in years.

Saint Louis, Butler and VCU ended the year in or around the AP Top 25; La Salle won a share of the Philadelphia Big 5 title for the first time in 15 years, and five teams found a place in the 2013 NCAA tournament.

Things didn't stop there for the Atlantic 10, as all five teams advanced to the Round of 32, becoming the only conference with more than two bids to have all its teams win a tournament game.

Each team was successful in its own right, but some schools will be much happier with their performances than others.
