We're about halfway through Atlantic 10 Basketball play and we've had some big surprises and disappointments so far. A first-place battle gave us an unexpected winner, while a bunch of others came down to the final seconds.

To this point, everyone has had at least one win and one loss. From a Bracketology standpoint, there's one team looking good for an at-large bid, while a couple of others are trying to get in the mix. Here's an updated look at the A-10, providing a power ranking from worst to first.

15. Saint Louis Billikens - 8-14 (1-8)

When the Billikens managed to beat St. Joe's by three points early in league play, it looked as if nothing else, the talent was going to keep them in most games. However, Saint Louis hasn't won since, currenlty on a six-game losing skid that includes a 23-point home loss to Davidson.

This team has had the least amount of wins but certainly the most drama, having a player leave the team (Tim Dalger) and burner accounts online wreaking havoc on social media. Coach Travis Ford came into the season on some sort of hot seat and its only gotten hotter in the past few weeks.

Barring some shocking run, the Billikens may have to start over this offseason. We'll see if they can find some success on the road this week, taking on La Salle and a rematch with St. Joe's.
