Local Hoops Poll Week Four: Change at the Top

Sorry for the delay. I'm now blogging during my vacation. I feel like a real blogger or something.

Witty comments will have to come later, if they come at all. Same thing for this week's schedule. If anyone has the time and wants to post this week's remaining matchups in the comments section below, feel free.

The changes: Maryland and Georgetown each move up a spot (with Maryland reclaiming No. 1), Virginia Tech leapfrogs GW into third and VCU does the same to Old Dominion to claim fifth, top-ranked UVA plummets to seventh (and should have fallen further), and Mason and Navy flip flop at 8/9. The utter wasteland below about No. 8 in this poll will make things unfortunately boring for the next few months. Maybe we should annex North Carolina or something.

Participation was significantly impacted by the holiday season. Which is something the AP has probably never said. We had just 36 voters this week. Let's hope they were the right 36. And as always, much thanks to Intern Boris for his thankless work.

And here's a story I wrote for the Food section today. It's about cheese.

1. Maryland (31) (11-2) 352

2. Georgetown (2) (9-3) 296

3. Virginia Tech (3) (9-3) 278

4. George Washington (7-2) 266

5. VCU (9-2) 189

6. Old Dominion (8-3) 183

7. Virginia (7-3) 173

8. George Mason (5-4) 101

9. Navy (9-4) 63

10. American (7-4) 39

11. Towson (5-5) 24

Also receiving votes: Loyola 3, VMI 3, Norfolk State 2, Hampton 1, Howard 1, James Madison 1, Longwood 1, UMBC 1, William & Mary 1.
