LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Seton Hall sits in a precarious position on its side of the brackets, facing teams that have dominated them in season play, however the Pirates seem to have gained some momentum, beating Butler University 51-50 during the first round of the tournament on March 12. Seton Hall will play Providence College on March 14, and it is impossible to tell if the Pirate's run will continue. Providence is ranked fourth in the conference but beat Seton Hall only once during the school's two contests this season, and both games were narrow wins.

Providence beat number five St. John's University 79-74 on March 13 during the tournament's second round.

WISH POPE FRANCIS A HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

On the other side of the brackets, number ten DePaul upset number seven Georgetown 60-56 on March 12 before getting knocked out by number two Creighton University 84-62 on March 13. Creighton plays number three Xavier on March 14, both teams sit at 1-1 against each other after two close regular season games.

Xavier took out number six Marquette University 68-65 on during the second round of the tournament.

The Atlantic 10 schools are also midway through their conference tournament with four Catholic schools still in contention.

Number one St. Louis plays number nine St. Bonaventure on March 14. St. Louis beat St. Bona 66-60 during their only season game back on Jan. 15. St. Bona beat number eight La Salle 82-72 during the second round of the tournament on March 13.

Dayton beat number 13 Fordham University 87-74 on March 13 and will play number four St. Joseph's on March 14. Dayton sits 0-2 against St. Joseph's from the regular season games.

Number two Virginia Commonwealth University and number seven University of Richmond also square off on March 14, after Richmond's 76-64 victory over Durquesne on March 13. VCU has gotten the better of Richmond during both of their season games.

Number six University of Massachusetts will play number three George Washington University on March 14. Washington beat UMass 67-61 during their regular season game on Feb. 15. Umass beat Rhode Island University by a narrow margin 65-61 on March 13.

In the Northeast conference Mount St. Mary's, seeded number four, has won its conference championship, upsetting the number one seeded Robert Morris University 88-71 and earning a berth in the NCAA Division 1 championship tournament.
