Atlantic 11 Week 3: Georgetown. Still.

(By Matt Gentry - AP) Georgetown dominates this poll, now and forever. It's getting so boring that next week, the pithy comments will return. I know, I know, it's very exciting. Anyhow, at least the midsection of the local basketball rankings were all shook up by Virginia's weird win...

Hoyas do like Mason

I'm using this video mostly as an excuse to post last week's leftover Atlantic 11 pith, but I wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one having George Mason flashbacks at the very end of the Hoyas' comeback win over U-Conn. on Saturday. When Stanley Robinson put up...

Gary Williams Breaks Coaching Rule

When I wrote about the American playoff beards, I left out what should have been the ending of the item. "If we go back to the tournament, if we're lucky enough to go back, I'm going to shave my head," Nick Hendra told me, "and just leave this [beard]." Then...

Who Lost Tyree Evans? The Media

It's perhaps easy to forget, because the after-shocks were considerably more interesting than the initial tremor, but the whole Gary Williams vs. Maryland Athletics thing was set off by this comment from Gary, concerning Gus Gilchrist and Tyree Evans: "Yeah, and it wasn't my fault that they're not here. You...

GW Fan Plays Games With ESPN

Maybe you've heard how the George Washington's basketball team isn't off to its best start of all time, what with the five-game losing streak and the blips against Coppin State and Longwood and the Athletic Director "wondering whether it's time to turn out the gym lights earlier each night...
