BUFFALO, N.Y. -- Duke's uncharacteristic season ended last night with an equally non-traditional exit in the first round of the NCAA tournament, as Virginia Commonwealth made the game-winning shot for a 79-77 upset and halted the Blue Devils' streak of nine straight Sweet 16 appearances. VCU guard Eric Maynor, whose late-game heroics were the reason the Rams beat George Mason to get the Colonial Athletic Association's automatic bid, again played an integral role in his team advancing. This time, his 15-foot jumper with 1.8 seconds remaining propelled Virginia Commonwealth into the second round of the tournament for the first time since 1985.

There are some games that probably don't merit much investigation. One would be Virginia Commonwealth's 68-44 dismantling of Towson last night. One team, VCU, finds itself deep in a title race in the Colonial Athletic Association. The other team, ninth-place Towson, does not. Given the disparity of stakes on the teams - not to mention talent - it was no surprise that the first-place Rams (16-7, 10-4 CAA) spent most of the second half holding their lead against the Tigers (6-17, 3-11), who have lost eight of their past nine.
