This is the consequence to George Washington's hiccup on Wednesday. The Musketeers steal a bid from somebody by winning four games in four days. Where they'll be seeded will be interesting as the Atlantic 10 (which now has 14 teams, most of them not on states bordering the Atlantic Ocean) was a worse league than the Colonial this year and they only went 8-8 in the conference.
