Kudos to the Washington Post Magazine for directing some attention toward the Hoya and its push for independence — but, even the pros can miss news.

Athletic Department spokesperson criticizes The Hoya‘s Basketball Preview for lack of women’s coverage

The Hoya‘s Basketball Preview is a nice piece of work–glossy, nice pictures–but, according to an Athletic Department spokesperson, it’s incomplete: it doesn’t mention the women’s basketball team.

WWCD: What Would Carrie Do?
