Last VA Top Five for this season
Each Monday since the new year began, SLANTblog has offered its new Virginia Top Five. This feature has ranked what seemed at the moment to be the best five teams from among the 14 Division I men's programs in the Commonwealth. With the Big Dance beginning this week this is the final Top Five for this season.
VCU (vs. UCLA) and Radford (vs. North Carolina) qualified for the NCAA tournament. Tech (vs. Duquesne) and Mason (vs. Penn St.) are going to the NIT. ODU (vs. The Citadel) is in the CBI. Three other state schools got invitations to the CBI -- Richmond, JMU and Liberty.
