The annual Atlantic 10 men's basketball media day was held today in Brooklyn with the league's head coaches descending upon the future location of the men's basketball tournament beginning in 2013.

Xavier was tabbed as the preseason favorite, garnering 34 points and 18 first-place votes. The Musketeers finished 24-8 overall and 15-1 in the conference last year. They have clinched at least a share of the A-10 regular season record over the last five years.

However, Xavier has never won the Atlantic 10 postseason tournament in that span.
