America's team them after the jump.
Location: Washington, D.C.
Record: 24-7 (13-1)
Leading scorers: Garrison Carr (17.8 ppg); Brian Gilmore (12.4 ppg); Derrick Mercer (11.5 ppg)
What to know:
- if you don't know the name Garrison Carr...know it now. As 10th in the country in three-pointers made, the face of the team will probably put up 25-30 points if they can pull off a first round upset.
- This is a senior laden team, so they're experienced. At the same time, they have no impressive wins. Notable losses include 83-54 to Oklahoma, 67-51 to Maryland, and 73-49 to Georgetown.
- They have the best team defense field-goal shooting percentage, holding opponents to 40 percent a game.
Projected seed: 13; and a dangerous one at that.
