The start of BIG EAST Conference play also means the start of the weekly BIG EAST Coaches' call, where every other week, the league's coaches call in and take questions from the media.  Today was the first of four times this through the end of February where John Thompson III called in and spoke to the members of the fourth estate.

Georgetown - Pitt Game Moved to ESPN

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
That first day back to school, or in this case, work, is always a struggle, but I perked up a bit this morning when I received an e-mail from ESPN about next week's game against Pittsburgh.

The game was originally slated to air on ESPN2, but has been moved to the main network channel (that would be ESPN), with Dave Pasch and legendary coach Bob Knight set to call the game.  It should be a great atmosphere at The Phonebooth that night as students are back in town for the first day.

The Hoyas are back on the air again on Saturday, hosting West Virginia downtown.  It's an 11 a.m. tip, so set your clocks and get their early.  Sean McDonough and Doris Burke are on the call for the game.

It's nice to get a chance to take a breather over these next couple of days, but we're back at it again this weekend.  Hope to see you all there on Saturday and Wednesday....

Well it's not really an island blog since we're in the Miami airport waiting for our connection to BWI.  Also, I am well aware that I skipped Day 5, but there really wasn't much to say except a tough game and a lot of film sessions, shoot around, etc.  So now let's get to the good stuff,WE BEAT NO. 4 TENNESSEE!

Hey folks, sorry for starting this after tip-off but I just flew back in from Ohio after being at Ohio State for the NCAA Tournament women's soccer game.

It's about 11:45 p.m. and I'm in my hotel room watching some tv and finishing up some final updates on the website before getting ready to pack and head home tomorrow morning following the Georgetown women's soccer teams 2-0 loss to Ohio State in the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals. It's never easy to say goodbye to a season and for the members of the Georgetown's women's soccer team, no one wanted to see this season end.

Repetition and consistency are always an important part of training.  Every team shoots shot after shot and runs drill after drill to make it perfect.  This consistency carries over to a team preparing for a game, trying to keep everything the same so there are no surprises and everyone is in their optimal playing mindset.

Greetings from Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium, where I am in the cozy confines of the press box and plan to be for the Georgetown women's soccer game at Ohio State. Kickoff is in just over 30 minutes and I'll be providing some insights throughout the game.  My first insight:  I'm really glad I'm inside and not down on the field.

Some of us in the sports information office may not be in Paradise, but for me and members of the women's soccer team, Columbus, Ohio on Thanksgiving Day may as well be Shangri-La.
