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.
