The Wizards are trying to get Eddie Jordan to the all-star game, but tonight something more important is at stake.

Virginia's three best teams are stocked with guards and thinking of tourney berths. Local No. 1 Va. Tech's performance has Seth Greenberg leading for ACC Coach of the Year.

The inconsistent Caps need to do something on this road trip and might have found a new checking line, while Official Beat Writer Tarik El-Bashir says Richard Zednik could be on the way out and the playoffs are doubtful. And you'll be able to get some weird preview thing here.
Finally blah blah Redskins salary cap.
