The 2011 NCAA Tournament begins soon, and there are a number of local teams that should get bids. Most notably, George Mason and Georgetown are safely in the field, and semi-local teams like Virginia Tech, Old Dominion and RIchmond should be in as well. But it's also been a downer for local hoops recently, with Georgetown faltering due to Chris Wright's injury and George Mason falling in the semifinals of the CAA Tournament.
Looking back, will we say that this was a "successful" year for Washington D.C. college basketball? That's the question Mike Prada and Scott Jackson discuss in this week's episode of SB Nation Radio on 106.7 The Fan.
We also talk to Tarik El-Bashir, the Georgetown beat writer for the Washington Post, about the Hoyas' recent struggles, the Wright injury and their potential NCAA seed. Why has Wright's injury caused the Hoyas to fall off so bad? Will next year be painful for Hoyas fans? We discuss those questions and more.
We also talk to T.J. Doyle of SB Nation D.C. and Gheorghe the Blog about the two CAA teams in the NCAA picture and discuss the Capitals' goalie musical chairs with our own Adam Vingan. You can also catch the show at 7 a.m. on Sunday morning and other times throughout the weekend on 106.7 The Fan.
