GW vs Vandy in Sacramento

The Colonials got a pretty good seed, with an 11, facing #6 seed Vanderbilt on this Thursday. This comes with some positives and some negatives. It's in Sacramento, which will be hard to get to - it looks like flights start around $400 to San Fran, and more to Sacto. The good part about that is Vandy fans won't be able to travel as well either. Rumor has it the game is at 5:10 pm, but that's unconfirmed as of now. Doug Gottlieb of ESPN says Vandy is over-seeded (as in they should have been a 7 or more), which is good for us, but they also are reliant on three pointers, which GW is somewhat weak against pretty good against, holding teams to 33% this year (thanks FQ for the stat). The team was especially good in the A-10 tourney (about which there will be more soon).

So it's a bit of a mixed bag, but I'm still thrilled. We got in, didn't get screwed on the seeding like last year, and have a decent shot at winning one game (despite one of the CBS analysts calling Vandy a sleeper team).
