Coach's Corner: John Thompson III

Qasual Questions: Throwdown Thursday

Before we flip the switch to Creighton coverage, enjoy these QQs on this beautiful Throwdown Thursday! Isaac Copeland made his 1st career start against Xavier. Is this a switch you'd like to see made permanent or should LJ Peak be back in the lineup once 100% healthy? What did you have for dinner last night? Creighton earned its 1st Big East win last night over St. John's.  Does this make you more or less terrified about Saturday's game? If you could pick any performer for the Super Bowl halftime show, who would it be and why?

View From Press Row: Well, That Sucked

There's nothing quite like that ‘Welcome back to the AP Top 25' that Xavier likes to roll out for your Georgetown Hoyas.  I guess that good news is that we can go a few days without arguing about proper court storming etiquette.  The other good news would be that the game was a 7 PM tip rather than the dreaded 9 PM made for Fox Sports 1 ‘classic'.  The immediate RPI repercussions seem to be a drop of about 10 spots in the RPI - from 13 down to 22.  That might shift a bit more as results keep coming in from around the country. Here are some of my post game observations before I check...

Delusion Train Derailed: Georgetown Falls at Home to Xavier, 66-53

Hoyas' four-game winning streak snapped as offense again stifled by Musketeers Georgetown turned in its ugliest performance of the season Tuesday, committing 17 turnovers and bricking nearly 50 percent from the free-throw line en route to this season's second one-sided, double-digit loss to Xavier. The Musketeers once again kept the Hoya offense in check inside while Georgetown was able to generate precious little from the perimeter. The Hoyas fell behind early and far, recovering too little and too late to make this game competitive. Any statistic you pick could describe Georgetown's...

Game Preview: Georgetown Hoyas vs. Xavier Musketeers

Game 20:  No. 21 Georgetown Hoyas (14-5, 6-2) vs Xavier Musketeers (13-7, 4-4) Series:  Musketeers lead 6-3 Where/When:  Verizon Center, Tuesday 7 PM TV:  Fox Sports 1 Fresh off a high scoring overtime win away from the friendly confines of the Verizon Center, Georgetown entered the national rankings Monday afternoon with a game against Xavier next up on the horizon. Sound familiar?  Well it should as the only other time the Hoyas had a little number next to their name on the bottom scroll they went up to Cincinnati only to have one of the worst New Year's Eves anybody has had in...

Georgetown's OT victory over Marquette in GIF Highlights

"Blog GIF Goddess" Hoya Saxual posted this excellent GIF documentation for Saturday's thriller over Marquette in the comments of our recap post. But it needed to be seen by more people so we're reposting it as an article. Give her all your daps and Oreos. Matt Carlino hit four threes in a row to start the game. Questions about a reversion to the mean that never comes and the LD-50 of househould bleach entered our minds, which only expect that type of onslaught in March. This GIF will give me nightmares. Tre Campbell is progressing at a much more rapid rate than expected towards being this...

The Georgetown Hoyas Are Once Again a Nationally Ranked Powerhouse!

We're back!  While we anxiously await the official word from the AP and Team Manager Polls, Georgetown's ascension into the Top 25 this week is all but a formality.  It's just a matter of where! College Basketball Talk: #23 Gary Parrish: #20 Seth Davis: #19 Rick Bozich: #15 In seeding news, the recent spurt has Georgetown firmly on the 6 seed line, with some Bracketfolk penciling in the Hoyas as high as a 3 seed. Of course, the last time Georgetown cracked the Top 25 they went out and got spanked by Xavier, so hopefully they can get over the annoying turd hurdle from Cincinnati...

Isaac Copeland: BIG EAST Rookie of the Week

It's been awhile but it looks like this week a Hoya will earn BIG EAST Rookie of the Week honors.  D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera was the last Georgetown player to pick up the award nearly two years ago on Feb 25, 2013 after going for what still is a career-high 33 points against DePaul. Isaac Copeland's two 17-point outings this week in wins over No. 4 Villanova and then Marquette will surely be enough.  Not only did Copeland set and then match his career high in back to back games be he did so shooting a combined 12-of-19 (63 percent) from the field while grabbing six rebounds in each...

Georgetown Class of '15 Recruiting Target: Kaleb Johnson

Potential Hoya: Kaleb Johnson After huge wins over Butler and Villanova, expectations are building for this year's Georgetown team.  With standout freshmen Isaac Copeland, Paul White, L.J. Peak, and Tre Campbell showing signs of great potential, it is easy to see that the future of the program is bright, but the team still needs to add additional pieces to fill out the roster.  Here's a profile of Kaleb Johnson, one of Georgetown's few remaining recruiting targets in the Class of 2015.
