There was sorrow in the Georgetown locker room Sunday afternoon, unadulterated anguish as the Hoyas were left to come to terms with how their latest season had come to a close.

City officials have approved a plan to keep the financially troubled Blue Jackets in Columbus until 2039 by allowing their home, Nationwide Arena, to be purchased with the help of casino revenue.
Casino tax revenue would be used to help buy the Blue Jackets' home arena from Nationwide Realty Investors and Nationwide would become part-owner of the financially troubled team under a proposal announced Wednesday to help the city keep its NHL club and preserve economic activity in the area near the arena.
Stuck watching 16 other teams head to the playoffs once again, the Columbus Blue Jackets need to get a lot better and will likely undergo a facelift in the offseason.
