What You Need to Know

Most important news: Mason creates a blue-ribbon panel to analyze Gunston.

Second-place: Gil says "the Hibachi grill was on" and was "cooking chicken and shrimp," as the Wiz win, the locker room is giddy, and Knicks fans chant "Fire Thomas," leading to

the classic "BOOOOOOOO!" headline.

Third-place: Semin accuses Ovie of having smiling "stretch marks" after the Caps continue their hot streak, leading the Senators to wave a white towel and complain about the officiating.

Four inter-area local hoops games last night: After a backcourt switch, Area No. 6 VA Tech tops No. 4 ODU, which fumbled its chances early. No. 8 George Mason survives at Radford, which led by 12 early. No. 10 American has no problem with Howard (more on that later), and Morgan State blows an 11-point lead but hangs on against Coppin for its first win. Elsewhere, No. 1 Maryland takes off after a hard foul and cruises past Fordham, despite Gary's worries about those darn mid-majors, and short-handed VMI smashes a DII team. Also, the super-confident Maryland women show no mercy in Brenda Frese's homecoming, and Pops Mensah-Bonsu heads to the D-League.

Maryland seniors talk NFL, Va. Tech's Vince Hall is named the top college football player in VA, Frank Beamer still hasn't been contacted about any jobs for Bud Foster, and Navy's Paul Johnson--who was supposed to be the frontrunner at N.C. State--will apparently not be going to Raleigh.

Gibbs says Brandon Lloyd has a good attitude, but Lloyd says he won't change and is still raising eyebrows. ("What would he know about winning," a teammate asks). Mike Sellers pulls down the pants of Ladell Betts, who is trying to get paid; Rock Cartwright could break the team's single-season kickoff record, Shaun Suisham is the team's 16th post-Lohmiller kicker, and Wilbon calls for Al Saunders's head.

Ryan Church continues to be the Nats' hottest trade prospect, but dealing with the Nats seems to be Plan E for everyone else. And they're apparently still shopping Chad Cordero, who doesn't want to leave.

C'mon, Big Stein, where's your recap of Coppin-Morgan, hon'? Only acceptable excuse is if you've gone deep cover to probe the findings of the George Mason Mascot Study Group.

Should be a fun Top 11 this week.

Hey Dan, I posted some info over on the caps messageboards about Duffman and his interest in strating a caps supports group (I, of course, linked your story and gave you props) and it seems this thing is starting to take off.

Duffman said he will bring 50 people to the Ducks game tomorrow, just as you said on your post. But it seems that this may be something larger and more permanent. All thanks to the Bog!

Blackaces, credit Duff, not me, but yeah, I've been following this. I plan to write about it much of the day tomorrow, starting with Duff and the morning skate and all that. If any Caps fans plan to join in with the Barra tomorrow night and would be willing to chat, shoot me an e-mail.
