The Wizards played on even terms with the Golden State Warriors, who have the NBA's best record, for the first 24 minutes.
The bracket is set for the 2015 Atlantic 10 Tournament and the final results are not what anyone expected back in October or even during January.
In the past week, James Harden, Stephen Curry, Russell Westbrook and LeBron James each made a convincing argument for being the league's Most Valuable Player.
The Wizards are a flawed NBA team, a revelation that generally makes them no different than the majority of teams, but is now frightening obvious.
