Abdoulie’s Local College Basketball Update

Here’s how our local college basketball teams are doing at this point in the season.

TeamRecordCurrent Status/vibe… recent performanceTournament OutlookOther info…?
UMD Women18-6The team is on a six-game winning streak after beating Wisconsin 70-43. I don’t see them being any lower than a 4th seed in the tourneyThey have a date with National Player of the Year candidate Caitlin Clark and Iowa, then the rest of their schedule are all ranked opponents.
UMD Men11-12The team isn’t looking good after losing to no.16 Ohio State.  The team is having a poor season after its head coach resigned in the beginning of the season.Right now, it looks like they’d be lucky to get in.The search for a new head coach will have to be addressed in the offseason.
Georgetown6-16Things are looking horrid for the Hoyas after losing to DePaul.  In the second half, they allowed a 26-0 run and David Jones for DePaul had a 20-point triple double. I don’t think they get in.Georgetown may not have double-digit wins for the first time since the 1971-72 season.  Being 0-10 in conference play, Coach Ewing is definitely on the hot seat.
Virginia15-9Unranked Virginia recently beat the 7th best team in the nation in Duke in Cameron Indoor.  Things are looking up for the Cavaliers.Hard to tell, but could definitely get in.They finish their season with all unranked opponents, except for a rematch with Duke on the 23rd.
