In case we forgot how good the Colonial Athletic Association has become, we got a big a reminder Sunday night.
The mid-major conference earned multiple bids to the 2006 NCAA Tournament. It features a George Mason team that went on a memorable run to the Final Four last season. And now the CAA is responsible for one of the biggest upsets of the young season.
Old Dominion, which was picked to finish fourth in the conference, went on the road and upset No. 8 Georgetown, 75-62. It was the first time the Hoyas had lost at McDonough Arena, where they have been playing sparsely in recent years, since 1982. It also marked the Monarchs' first victory over a ranked team since beating Villanova in the 1995 NCAA Tournament.
We examine that matchup and more in this version of What We Learned Last Week.
Check out an in-depth look at three top 25 teams who are coming off meaningful games and a rundown of the best individual performances (games from last Monday thru Sunday are considered):
