Another Thursday morning and another BIG EAST Coaches Conference call. Georgetown Head Coach John Thompson III called in just before noon and spoke about the upcoming game against Providence:
Today was the weekly BIG EAST Coaches Conference call for men's basketball. League coaches have to call in to take questions from the media on a bi-weekly basis. So Coach Thompson was off last week, but back on again this week. When he was on a couple of weeks back, I transcribed his responses to post here, but he was on for a very short time today, mainly because he only had one question asked.
We're 17 minutes from tipoff at the Louis Brown Athletic Center - or the RAC, as everyone knows it - and the crowd is slowly filtering in as the Hoyas get ready to take on Rutgers in an important BIG EAST game.
I'll be here as much as I can throughout the game...probably more than I am for some home games.
