1. Georgetown (28-6 in 2007-08)
Not as definitive as last year, but the Hoyas are probably the best the area has to offer.
2. Virginia Tech (21-14)
Allen/Delaney/Vassallo troika carries Hokies to the NCAA tournament after a one-year hiatus.
3. Virginia Commonwealth (24-8)
One last go-round of Maynor Mania should send Rams back to the postseason.
4. Maryland (19-15)
Junior guard Greivis Vasquez might be the best player in Delmarva/D.C. Still, he needs a frontcourt.
5. American (21-12)
Potent backcourt of Garrison Carr and Derrick Mercer makes the Eagles the Patriot League favorites.
6. George Mason (23-11)
A down year for the Patriots still yields a record above .500, so don´t expect much of a drop-off.
7. Virginia (17-16)
If Sylven Landesberg immediately thrives, the Cavaliers could exceed expectations.
