Georgetown vs. Cincinnati
March 5, 2010
It seems like only yesterday that I was standing out in the rain in front of McDonough Gymnasium waiting for Midnight Madness to start. Playing in the Big East Conference is indeed like running a grueling marathon. In what was supposed to be a down year, the Big East has been as balanced and tough a conference as there is in the country. Yes, the Hoyas have had some thrilling victories, and some difficult losses. However, we now are in March, and everyone is hoping to catch fire at the end of the season. It is tempting to look to next week and the Big East Tournament in Madison Square Garden. Like the Frank Sinatra song, if you can make it there you can make it anywhere. I look forward to my trip next week to my second home, New York. However, looking to next week now would be a mistake. We have one big game left on Saturday, against a very physical, and talented Cincinnati team. It will be interesting to see the freshman phenom, Lance Stephenson of the Bearcats face the Hoya Triplets: Austin Freeman, Chris Wright, and Jason Clark. Please come out to Verizon Center and cheer on our Hoyas! We want some momentum going into next week’s tournament in New York.
As I mentioned in my last HHC Blog, we want to focus on making Verizon Center our House! We do not have any seniors on this team, so we need to come out and honor our team for playing their hearts out all season. Each one of us need to do everything we can to keep Georgetown fans only in the seats. It has been a long winter, so let’s finish the season right, and Rock the Verizon Center!
P.S. Happy Belated Birthday to Dr. Bill Licamele (aka LicHoya)!
We are Georgetown!
