Weekend In Review: Did The Hoyas Get Screwed?

The Fish Market flooded! Is it me or do you see those flood warnings think it's BS? Maybe I should take those warnings seriously—especially after seeing pictures of the flooded market. SWDC blog writes:

"An overcast Sunday morning brought surprises to the Southwest Fish Market which was flooded by high water on the Washington Channel today. The roadway on East Potomac Park/Hains Point was also partially flooded. Workers at the market did their best to install temporary wooded paths to the market stalls, which were still open and filled with seafood. By early afternoon, the water had retreated, and it was business as usual at the market."

The AP reports "soggy" conditions elsewhere in the northeast.

After the jump: hoops news, etc.

Big local hoops news. The Hoyas earned the 3rd seed in the midwest region and will face Ohio in the first round. The team got a raw deal having to play in the midwest as they face the most stacked region in the tournament with Kansas, the number one overall seed, in that region along with the Terps (the fourth seed), Michigan State, Tennessee and Ohio State. The Hoyas should have gotten a two seed in the east region!!!

Someone please explain to me how Duke ended up a No. 1 seed in the tournament.

In other hoops news, DeMatha beat Ballou in the "Abe Pollin City Title Game."

And finally, Howard Kurtz made an ass of himself on CNN.

    Please...there is no way the Hoyas should have been higher than a #3 seed (although it does suck they got a tough bracket)....your bias is showing. I'll agree with you on the Duke thing...WTF?!

    I'm Terps fan. I don't really care at all about the Hoyas. I just know they beat some good teams this year including Duke, and had a tough schedule.

  • Hoops

    And there were plenty of other teams that had schedules as hard/harder than Gtwn and also ended the regular season ranked higher than Gtwn did. They should be lucky they are a 3 instead of a 4, but they should not be higher than a 3.

    g'town may have slipped down the stretch w/freemen dealing with his medical issues but they showed their true colors by going to big east tourney finals and defeating 'cuse along the way.

    im not upset at 3 seed. just that they got placed in midwest bracket along with several of the top ranked teams in the country.

    duke sorry ass on the other hand need a last minute 3 to beat george tech in the weak ass acc and they get a 1 seed with no real threat in their region. that is some pure bull shit!

    i still cant beleive there are some folks still looking for great white hope by give duke a catwalk to final four.

  • Jason Cherkis

    I still think Duke won't make it to the Final Four.
