NCAA tournament 2010: Rating Spokane
During the Maryland men's basketball team's media availability last night, an informal poll was conducted in order to determine which of the Terrapins' past two NCAA tournament sites -- Kansas City or Spokane -- was more appealing. The results were not so flattering. For either city.
Sophomore guard Sean Mosley said Spokane actually was a pretty nice city. In fact, he complimented the hotel Maryland is staying at in the downtown area. Or, at least, Mosley was pretty sure the team was staying in downtown Spokane.
"It’s a relaxing city," Mosley said. "We’re staying downtown, I guess, because there’s a lot of buildings and stuff, but it’s pretty neat, though."
Mosley said he would prefer Spokane over Kansas City, where the team played in the first and second round of the NCAA tournament last season.
"It’s different because in Kansas City there’s nothing to do out there," Mosley said. "You’re in the middle of nowhere. But Spokane is a nice city."
Not all of his teammates concurred. Junior guard Adrian Bowie described Spokane as "very boring" and said he would take Kansas City over Spokane.
"There was nothing to do," Bowie said of how the players spent their free time Thursday. "We just went out walking just to, like, find places to go, and nowhere. Just ended up walking around the hotel."
Junior guard Cliff Tucker agreed that Spokane was the more boring of the two cities, but then he followed up with an answer that would have made his coaches proud.
"We're not really worried about that though," Tucker said. "We're just trying to focus on the game."
