Mason Wins!

WASHINGTON, D.C.: Carrying the ball for many college basketball fans who enjoy seeing Billy Packer and other business-as-usual hoops experts made to look/smell like windbags, after they carped about a mere CAA team receiving an at-large bid, George Mason methodically finished off Wichita State: Mason 63, Wichita St. 55.

Now Mason advances to Sunday's NCAA action, the Elite Eight. Below are links to stories about the Patriots' Sweet Sixteen victory over the Shockers:

Associated Press: "...There were questions on Selection Sunday about whether the Patriots belonged at the Big Dance as an at-large choice from the Colonial Athletic Association, in part because the team lost two of its last four games. Think they belong now?"
