    Deserving teams are hard to find for the NCAA Tournament

  • William and Mary loses in CAA tournament quarterfinals to Hofstra

    Darius James lifts Old Dominion into championship against VCU

  • Old Dominion turns focus to the Big Dance

    In one prominent bracketologist's predicted NCAA tournament field, there sits an immediate, intriguing possibility. ESPN's Joe Lunardi has Old Dominion (27-6), fresh off its victory against VCU in the Colonial Athletic Association championship game,...

    Looking ahead to the 2011 Bay Rivers District baseball season calls to mind the words of 1960s rockers Buffalo Springfield: "There's something happening here. What it is ain't exactly clear." What that something might be is a changing of the guard atop...
  • Teel Time: Projecting the NCAA tournament field

    And a good Selection Sunday morning to all! Just perused a mock bracket from Jerry Palm, the bracketologist whom I most respect. Our only disagreement: He has St. Mary's in instead of Colorado. One very interesting part of Palm's field: He seeded Old...
