We’re a quarter of the way through conference play, and fellow Yahoo! “Big Noise” Evans posts the first Big Board of the season, so let’s look at the local teams, shall we?
- Georgetown: No. 3-seed
- George Mason (Chris’ alma mater): 13-seed
- VMI (our Dad was once institutionalized): 14-seed
- American: 15-seed
- Maryland: on the bubble
- Virginia Tech: also on the bubble (before last night)
Of course our team of choice is the Terps, who, despite wins over Michigan State (a 2-seed), Michigan (a 10) and Vermont (a 16), are once again on the outside looking in. That’s what losing at home to Morgan State does for you, I suppose. Still, beat Duke on Saturday and
College Park will burn with the heat of a thousand couches they’ll debut on next week’s Board.
Also, in case you’re interested, Evans has nine Big East teams in the field, seven from the Big Ten, six from the ACC and the Big 12 and five from the Pac-10. No other conference has more than three, not even the CAA.
