I'm a big fan of college basketball, so I figured I'd see how our local NCAA division 1 school, Howard was doing, since they're in the neighborhood and all. It looks like the men aren't doing so well, currently sitting near the bottom of the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference. They'd need to have an amazing run in the conference tournament to make it, winning 4 games in 4 days. But hey, stranger things have happened.
The women, however, have a better shot, as they're currently in the middle of the 11 team conference, and if they can get to 5th place or better, they'll have a bye. Both men's and women's tourneys are March 9-13.
As for watching the NCAAs in the neighborhood, CommonWealth is probably your best bet, as they have a lot of big TVs in the bar area, and there are also a few TVs at Red Rocks. The other local joints don't have any TVs. Too bad Meridian Pint isn't open yet!
