Weak End

With the season finishing up with a disappointing loss to Villanova, it was a terse reminder that we should have seen coming. Doesn't it just all make sense that just when our fears were being put to rest we were reminded of why we had those fears in the first place? Nice work by bizarro Eric Devendorf (33 points) in the loss though...

Anyway, so where does this leave us anyway? Thanks to the Post-Standard's Kim Baxter for doing all the heavy lifting for us:

- First Round
Noon - No. 8 DePaul vs. No. 9 Villanova
2 p.m. - No. 5 Syracuse vs. No. 12 Connecticut
7 p.m. - No. 7 West Virginia vs. No. 10 Providence
9 p.m. - No. 6 Marquette vs. No. 11 St. John's

Thursday - Quarterfinals
Noon - No. 1 Georgetown vs. 8/9 winner
2 p.m. - No. 4 Notre Dame vs. 5/12 winner
7 p.m. - No. 2 Louisville vs. 7/10 winner
9 p.m. - No. 3 Pittsburgh vs. 6/11 winner

And just because I know you're wondering,
this is the second time SU and UConn have met in the first round. SU won the other first-round meeting, 86-75, in 2001.

Also from the P-S, the All-League Teams have been announced. I'm a little confused as to how eleven guys end up on the first-team...are we using prison-rules lineups? Demetris Nichols is the lone Orange player on the list, apparently at linebacker. By the time you're done with the All-Second-Team, that's 20 guys. That's FOUR teams!!! Shouldn't you be embarrassed if you DON'T make All-League?

Eric Devendorf made the honorable mention and Paul Harris made the freshman team for those keeping score.
