In a rare mid-week sellout, the Wiz pull away from the Bulls in the fourth. Gil praises his "supporting cast, earning laughter as Antonio Daniels calls himself Wonder Woman, the Bulls had chances to win and were unhappy with the officiating, and Hinrich calls Gil "a jokester."
Screech is being deemphasized in favor of the Giant Presidents, Frank Robinson feels slighted and is done with Kasten and Bowden, Kasten tries to explain the Frank situation while Nationals Enquirer is highly displeased by all this, the club signs four Dominicans, and Bowden notes that his entire staff will make less than Gil Meche.
Local No. 1 Maryland loses at home to Miami (with Ibekwe seeing a lack of energy, Strawberry seeing a lack of heart, and Gary seeing a butt-kicking on the boards, and the Terps women more than make up for the loss by giving Miami its worst home loss ever); Local No. 3 Va. Tech takes care of UNCG; despite "brilliant guard play," Local No. 4 GW falls at U-Mass and Karl Hobbs talks "rebuilding year" and (shock!) takes a shot at the media; "spunky but flawed" Local No. 5 UVA gets pounded on the glass at UNC ( as one columnist says the Cavs are soft, another says it was a missed chance, and a third says the loss was pretty typical); too-quick Local No. 6 VCU snaps No. 8 W&M's win streak, Local No. 7 ODU crushes my alma mater thanks to Arnaud Dahi (and UD's awfulness), Local No. 9 Navy is running the "Vegas" offense, but this is evidently seedy Vegas (another home loss), Will Thomas is the face of Local No. 10 George Mason (which faces Towson tonight), Richmond gets a win, and James Madison doesn't.
