Maryland? Nope. Georgetown? Not likely. Howard? Uh uh. GW? Absolutely.
The Colonials are headed to the NCAA tourney after winning the Atlantic 10 Conference Championship and an Automatic Spot at in the Magnificent 65. It’s their first bid since 1999, and everyone seems to think it’s the biggest upset since time began here in DC. Not so fast, there, amigo. Maryland may have beaten Duke twice this year, but finished the season 1-5, plus an ACC Tournament loss to Clemson in the first round.
For the first time since 1993, the Colonials are the only team from DC headed to the Big Dance. They’ll start in Nashville, TN, as a 12 seed playing fifth seeded Georgia Tech. Looking for the bracket? ESPN has it all ready for you.
