The A-10 was an interesting conference in 2009-10: Three teams (the Temple Owls, Xavier Musketeers and Richmond Spiders) announced themselves as elite or emerging, and the Saint Louis Billikens, Charlotte 49ers and Rhode Island Rams weren't that far off. A-10 teams get into the thick of the college hoops discussion early this season: Those Rams play the Big East favorite Pittsburgh Panthers on Nov. 8. Here now: five questions on the A-10 in 2010-11.

Can Temple make it past the first round?
