The 2012 Atlantic Sun Tournament will be hosted by the Mercer Bears who perhaps hold the State of Georgia's best chance of earning a post-season NCAA Tournament bid. The top 8 teams from the Atlantic Sun earn spots in the conference tournament and both Stetson and Kennesaw State are getting a head start of offseason activities.
Belmont is the top seed for the tournament and will open play on Wednesday, February 29 at 2:30 p.m. against the No. 8 seed Jacksonville. Mercer is the No. 2 seed in the tournament and closes play on Wednesday with the 8:30 p.m. game against Lipscomb.
