SHOWDOWN - BLACK EYED PEAS
GET READY FOR SHOWDOWN, IT'S ABOUT GO DOWN HOYAS
Hoyanation and friends, are you ready for the showdown? I am so ready. I've been waiting for this moment every since the Hoyas last season ended. It's been a long wait, but I was patient and confident the Hoyas would get this point, and go on to further great things. The Hoya redemption dream season has been just what it is, a dream and I believe dreams due come true. The Hoyas are 3-0 in their new season (BET) and are going into the Big East Tourney Championship game tonight in a showdown with the West Virginia Mountaineers, who won their semi-final matchup against the Notre Dame Fighting Irish.
It's the third time in the last four years that Georgetown has reached the Big East's championship game. This time might have been the sweetest. Against Marquette, Georgetown looked every bit the conference's elite, shooting 53.6 percent while holding the Golden Eagles to 37 percent and winning the rebounding battle, 44-24.
"It wasn't anything," Monroe said. "It was opportunities that I took. I just come out and try to do things for my team." Still, players and coach alike made it clear that the team's work was not yet done. It's March," Thompson said, " and there's no time to take a breath and pat yourself on the back in March. I think Chris Wright said it: 'We didn't come here to just say we would beat Syracuse."
IT'S MY TIME - FABOLOUS
IT'S YOUR TIME HOYAS!
