The Hoyas once again snatched victory from the jaws of defeat, beating UNC in the quarterfinals to advance to the Final Four. This is the second year in a row that the greater DC area has had a team in the finals of the big dance, and this weekend’s matchup with the Buckeyes should be one to remember.
One of the things, in watching Sportscenter at lunch today, is that Dick Vitale does not look, well, vital. He’s been the central media figure of March Madness for years and years, and it’s a bit sad to see him look so old and try to pull off his usual fervor.
That said, this weekend’s games in Atlanta are the big deal. Expect this town to go absolutely crazy when the Hoyas win.
