#2 Maryland vs. #7 Georgia Tech

Moving onto Friday's evening session, we've got ACC regular season co-champs Maryland against a Georgia Tech squad that did just enough last night to probably clinch an NCAA bid. People might remember that GT almost won at College Park last month, falling only after a Cliff Tucker buzzer-beating 3 did them in. Can Derrick Favors make up for his team's terrible guards to pull off the revenge upset? Representing UMD, we have DC area rapper Wale. While I could have picked any number of other artists from the District, Wiz pointed out that at the beginning of Wale's song "Chillin" he says "DC chillin, PG chillin," referring to Prince George's county, which contains College Park. That's good enough for me. I'm posting the original version of the song, not the album version with Lady Gaga, although that one's alright too.

For the ATL, I'm going to use "Bad Kids" by Black Lips. It makes sense, Paul Hewitt's team is made up of too many bad kids, at least when it comes to decision-making on the court. And the line about "ain't no college grad kids" is perfect for the various one-and-done players that have passed through there recently (including Javaris Crittenton of the Washington Wizards, last seen pulling a gun on Gilbert Arenas in the team's locker room and getting suspended for the rest of the season).

Wale - Chillin
Black Lips - Bad Kids
