Report: Bonnies Win Cancels Consideration For Drexel, Five Others

Had St. Bonaventure not won the Atlantic-10 Tournament, Drexel would have been among six teams considered for a final at-large NCAA Tournament.

This is according to an ESPN story, quoting NCAA interim vice president Greg Shaheen, who was speaking on a conference call to reporters.

Before the A-10 final, a spot on the bracket was left open and there would have been a vote. The six teams under consideration were Drexel, Miami, Mississippi State, Nevada, Oral Roberts and Seton Hall.

That all became moot when St. Bonaventure defeated Xavier in the A-10 final. St. Bonaventure was the fourth A-10 team selected, following Temple, St. Louis and Xavier.
