Abdoulie’s Local College Basketball Update
Here’s how our local college basketball teams are doing at this point in the season.
|Team||Record||Current Status/vibe… recent performance||Tournament Outlook||Other info…?|
|UMD Women||18-6||The 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 tourney||They 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 Men||11-12||The 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.|
|Georgetown||6-16||Things 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.|
|Virginia||15-9||Unranked 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.|
