St. John’s 86, Georgetown 80: Not The Best Week Ever

Sleeping with the Enemy: The Johnnies

Thanks once again to Rumble in the Garden for keeping us entertained during these troublesome times. So you're doing better than we are in Big East play? How did that happen? Does that speak to some substantive improvements on your end or are we just that terrible? I feel like I should offer you all a proverbial couch and a bit of hope, a foot massage and a shot of rum. Seriously...

Healthier Hoyas For DePaul?

Georgetown returns to the court Wednesday night. Georgetown needs a win. More to the point, the Hoyas (14-13, 5-9 Big East) cannot afford a loss to last place DePaul with postseason hoops in mind.

“Georgetown’s Recent Mediocrity is Not Sustainable for the Long-Term Health of the Conference”

Interesting piece from The Comeback today on the origins of the “new” Big East, which should only make things more depressing for Hoyas fans. The entire article is RIGHT HERE, a few Georgetown-related nuggets below: - Georgetown, long a stalwart of the old league along with archrival (and departing) Syracuse, was a top-10 team that previous season - The Hoyas were the...

RECAP: Creighton 87, Georgetown 70

A loss for the Hoyas, a career-high 35 points for Marcus Foster Well, that was frustrating to watch. If you want to label one thing as the decisive factor in this game, the fact that Georgetown shot only 13% from beyond the arc is an easy scapegoat. However, it was a series of familiar systemic problems with both management and execution that truly put this one out of reach. The...

Identifying How The Hoyas Can Win Big

I’m not sure what kind of batting average John Thompson III would post in professional baseball. Based on how he typically answers media questions, I suspect he’d be the kind of hitter how would foul off pitch after pitch. No big, violent swings. Not looking to go the other way. Get some singles. Maybe a two-bagger if you leg it out. But mostly aim to make contact, work the pitch...

The below was submitted to CH as a Letter to the Editor: News broke earlier this week that N.C.

Georgetown’s Defense: New, Improved, and Definitely not Lazy

Marquette is one of the better offensive teams in the BIG EAST. They beat No. 1 Villanova. Before that they dropped 102 points on Creighton in victory in Omaha.

That being said, after Marquette defeated Georgetown at home back on Dec 28 Golden Eagles guard JuJuan Johnson called the Hoyas effort...

What’s The Deal With Bradley Hayes?

This is a bit late, but the first chance I had to get online. Seeing as we didn’t have a specific Bradley Hayes article following Tuesday’s win over DePaul...

Primarily after going the other way in back-to-back wins, both over ranked teams at...
