Good news for the Delmarva/D.C. rankings – there will be no winless watch this season.

Thanks to UMES’ defeat of NJIT  (perhaps, to continue the alphabet soup, in a game of H-O-R-S-E), all 29 Division I programs in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and the District own a victory this season.

Some, of course, have more wins than others.

For now, Georgetown maintains its edge at the top, with Maryland solidifying its No. 2 spot with last night’s BB&T Classic victory.

Consider Virginia Tech and VCU 3A and 3B at the moment; it’s clear the Hokies have the pieces to be good, but coach Seth Greenberg readily conceded last night Tech could have won or lost just about any of their games so far this season. Maybe not Fairfield, but the other seven have all been decided by less than 10 points.
