- St. Bonaventure has clinched the outright Atlantic 10 regular season championship and the top seed in this week's Atlantic 10 Tournament.
- It is the first-ever outright Atlantic 10 regular season crown in program history. The Bonnies owned a three-way share of the title in 2016. The Bonnies also won the 2012 Atlantic 10 Tournament Championship.
- St. Bonaventure is in the midst of one of the best runs of success for any Atlantic 10 program. Last week, the Bonnies clinched their seventh consecutive season of double-digit conference wins, the most for any A-10 program. Since the 2011-12 campaign, the Bonnies won the league title in '12, a regular season crown in '16, reached the A-10 Championship Game in '19, scored an NCAA Tournament win in 2018 over blue blood UCLA and averaged 19 wins per season. Bona's 83-39 record in A-10 games since '14-15 also is second-best among all A-10 programs.
- The Bonnies have built an impressive NCAA Tournament resume. Despite having every game on their schedule since Jan. 13 altered in some way by postponements, cancellations or other schedule changes, the Bonnies have scored five wins over teams in the top 110 in the NCAA NET while ranking an A-10 best No. 28 themselves in the NET rankings. The Bonnies have no bad losses – each of their three setbacks have come against teams in the Top 105, including two on the road at Top 50 opponents. A third loss at Rhode Island (104) Dec. 30 came essentially without second-leading scorer Jaren Holmes who only played 90 seconds due to back spasms.
