William & Mary Storms the Court
As some smart WaPo copy editor realized last night, it's impossible to make too many Tribe Called Quest references this week, with William & Mary--having lost six of its final seven regular season games--storming its way to the CAA final on the strength of three last-second shots. And so before we get to tonight's final against Doc Nix and George Mason, let's momentarily heel up, wheel up, bring it back, come rewind:
* With all the talk about Old Dominion Coach Blaine Taylor's mustache, we've been sadly remiss in discussing CAA coach of the year Tony Shaver's mustache. It's a darn good one.
* From the W&M student newspaper's live blog: "The Kaplan Krazies, the four-man group of high school students who are some of the College's most loyal, die-hard fans, nearly got kicked out of the student section. Fortunately, they've been permitted to stay."
Chances that I interview the Kaplan Krazies tonight? About 174 percent. Oh, and also from that live blog, W&M's pep band is reported to be the only CAA pep band that didn't go to the tourney. Doc Nix and the Green Machine will record a no-contest victory tonight.
* The giddy leadership of Gheorghe: The Blog "is on the way back to Richmond to see if miracles really do happen." If miracles do happen, you know for sure that Richmond Coliseum would be among the most dreadful sites ever to be graced with a dash of heavenly interference.
* And yeah, it would appear the Kaplan Krazies and friends stormed the heck out of that floor after their semifinal win. My lonely quest to reserve the floor storming for NCAA tourney-clinching wins appears to have gone the way of Maryland's bubble chances. Thanks to the gang at Storming the Floor for the video.
