I’ve often thought that the two most interesting things for a sports writer to cover are the awesome teams and the […]


Junior Mike King and Maryland’s Terence Morris grace the cover of the D.C. edition of Athlon’s College Basketball Preview, which declares the Colonials’ No. 5 the “King of D.C.” In the one-page preview of the men’s team, Athlon says: “If there’s one certainty about a Tom Penders-coached team it’s that the veteran coach will win.
