Georgetown coach John Thompson III reiterated late Thursday night that Austin Freeman will play again this season. "He will absolutely play again this season," Thompson said. "He's learning about his body, how his blood-sugar levels fluctuate. He may play Saturday against Cincinnati. It will be a doctor's decision at this point."
Thompson said part of the reason for the Hoyas' inconsistency has been a flu bug that affected much of the team. "We've been healthy now for a few days," Thompson said. "It's the first time in a few weeks."When I think about this game being the last regular season Big East game I have say to myself, it funny how times flies, but then I think again, and I think about how long a season it is in the "brutal" and "unforgiving" Big East conference considered to be the best college D1 conference in the USA.
We've had some bumps along the way, but that's what life is all about, and that's what dreams are made of. The Hoyas redemption dream season moves forward. Clint Eastwood in Marine movie Heartbreak Ridge said it best, "Improvise, Overcome, and Adapt".
At the 1:53 mark Improvise, Overcome and Adapt" - Clint Eastwood
The Hoyas (19-9 9-8 be) look to improvise, overcome and adapt with a sense of urgency against the Bearcats (16-13 7-10 BE) in their last regular season Big East game tomorrow at the Verizon Center, D.C. Gametime 12:00 pm.
Cincinnati and Georgetown are meeting for the seventh time since the series began when UC joined the BIG EAST Conference in 2005-06. The Bearcats look for third straigh win vs. Georgetown. The Hoyas won the first four meetings, but the Bearcats swept Georgetown last season, winning in Cincinnati, 65-57, and rallying for a 64-62 overtime victory in Washington. UC is 1-3 vs. the Hoyas at the Verizon Center. Senior guard Deonta Vaughn is the Bearcats career leading scorer vs. Georgetown, averaging 17.2 points per game in five career starts.
CURRENT BEARCATS VS. GEORGETOWN
· Senior guard Deonta Vaughn and sophomore forward Yancy Gates are the only current Bearcats to average in double figures vs. Georgetowna. Vaughn is averaging 17.2 ppg in five career games vs. GU, while Gates has posted 10.0 ppg in two appearances.
· In last year’s 64-62 overtime win at the Verizon Center, Vaughn led the team in points (16), rebounds (9), and assists (6) as UC overcame a double-digit deficit in the second half.
We definitely we want to limit those guys along with Bearcat the 6-5 Lance Stephenson, a freshmen sensation from Bronx NYC and Lincoln High School.
