This is the most exciting month of the year for basketball fans and it's also has been the most unpredictable month of weather in Northern Virginia. The NCAA basketball tournament gets underway later this week with hopes for Virginia teams to prevail & more spring-like weather to appear. Here are some highlights and updates on our Virginia teams moving on to the NCAA Tournament.
The University of Virginia, claimed victory over Duke in the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament, and will be the top seed in the East Region.
No. 6 Virginia, beat Duke on Sunday earning its first ACC tournament championship since 1976. They will play Coastal Carolina, a No. 16 seed, at 9:25 p.m. Friday at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C.
The winner will face the winner of Friday’s Memphis-George Washington game. Memphis (23-9) is an eight-seed and George Washington (24-8, which I'm sure will prove to be an intense game.
