Vote for the best local college basketball team of all time

FINAL UPDATE: Congrats to our champions, the 2005-06 George Mason Patriots, and thanks for voting!

As March Madness nears, we ask you: What is the greatest local college basketball team of all time?

Now, we always get into debates about what “local” means, so for the purposes of this vote, we selected 16 Division I schools from D.C., Maryland and Virginia. In order to be eligible, the team in question must have qualified for the NCAA Tournament. And each school is represented just once, with our crack staff picking the particular squad that had the most March success.

With that said, now the decision is yours. Click though our matchups below to vote to see which teams should move on to our Elite Eight. Voting for this round will close at noon Wednesday, Feb. 28, and we’ll open up the next round of voting shortly after that.
