Maryland didn’t make it this year. Neither did Georgetown. Virginia Tech and George Mason and JMU didn’t either. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have our fun. Here’s a quick guide to DMV teams and their draw in this year’s field of 68:
*No. 1 seed Virginia vs. No. 15 Coastal Carolina in Raleigh on Friday — They stay in the East, the same region as Villanova (2), Iowa State (3) and Michigan St. (4). Don’t be shocked if Michigan St., not UVA, is the popular Final Four pick.
*No. 5 VCU vs. No. 12 SF Austin in San Diego on Friday — Seth Davis predicted an upset in the Selection Sunday show. Winner (probably) gets UCLA in the round of 32. Let’s go Rams.
No. 8 George Washington vs. No. 9 Memphis in Raleigh on Friday — Unless Coastal Carolina makes some history, the winner gets UVA. George Washington vs. Thomas Jefferson!
*No. 15 American vs. No. 2 Wisconsin in Milwaukee on Thursday — Wisconsin in Milwaukee!
