Pitchers and catchers report

Up at West Point, they are already busy hyping Army baseball.

Who can blame them? Basketball season basically ended in December for the Black Knights.

According to this release found on CollegeSports.com:
Fresh off its second Patriot League championship in five years and the second NCAA Regional appearance in school history, Army's baseball team continues preparations for the 2005 season, which now stands little more than one week away.
We are not a baseball site. We post this only to pose this question: If the Cadets can win in other sports, why do they suck so in hoops?

We're not expecting an answer. We spent two days a few weeks back trying to figure it out and couldn't. But it seems somebody at the Academy ought to take a hard look at what is wrong and make some changes, either to improve the basketball program, or to drop to D-3.

The only reason the Cadets are not last in the RPI is because Navy somehow laid an egg in West Point earlier this season. And even at No. 326, or wherever they are today (hardly worth checking), Army is a bigger anchor on the conference's RPI than the ones Navy uses on its battleships.
