Yes, that George Mason, somewhere up in Fairfax. The underdog Patriots, coached by rather unglamorous Jim Larranaga. You remember straight arrow Larranaga, don't you? He was an assistant under straight arrow Terry Holland at Virginia -- the only coach and school from the Commonweath of Virginia to have made it to the Final Four, until now.
Cinderella is still dancing and having a ball. It's the last weekend of March and now preseason polls don't matter any more: Geo. Mason 86, Connecticut 84 (OT).
