“And strike three! You’re out!” As the Nationals continue their playoff run this 2017 season, we can only hope that we don’t hear that phrase too often. At least not in reference to the Nats. Unfortunately for Washington fans, the teams from the area do not have a stellar track record when it comes to playoff success.

The Cleveland Cavaliers and the Golden State Warriors are arguably the best two teams in the league. These two teams have met in the finals the last two years, and are expected to meet again this year. The Cavaliers faced the Indiana Pacers in the first round of the playoffs, however, they were no match for King James and the Cavaliers. The Indiana Pacers lost in game four of this series with a score of 106-102.
Not only can the University of Mary Washington women’s rugby team feel confident about their undefeated season, but after this weekend’s playoff wins, they can celebrate their earned spot at Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) Nationals in the spring.
Week 10 is in the books, and we now have a better sense of who is for real and who is not. The 2013-2014 season is past the halfway point, and we are now at that mark where every week becomes a must win for playoff hopefuls.

The NBA playoffs are under way and the championship match up seems as though it has already been determined. The top-seeded Lakers in the western conference and the top-seeded Cavaliers of the eastern conference seem to be on a collision course for the finals and if those two don’t meet to battle for the NBA crown it would be not only surprising, but extremely disappointing.
Many believed that the Lakers main competition in the West would come via the San Antonio Spurs. However, the Spurs took a big hit when they lost star guard Manu Ginobli for the entire playoffs due to an ankle injury. The Denver Nuggets are the second-seed in the West, but very few people are buying in to their legitimacy as a true title-contender.
