I'm hoping everyone had a great Christmas! Loving the time off this holiday season still having so much to do outside of work. Hoyanation I was so excited from the Memphis win I didn't do a blog after the game, but I have these two videos one of my former players Philip Wiafe (Wiafe Highlights) made for me to share with you:
Georgetown vs. Memphis Highlights 2011
Jason Clark Highlights vs. Memphis 2011
Coming off of a second win over the Memphis Tigers. "It's always good to beat a team two times in a row. That's the type of game we're going to be playing when we get into the BIG EAST so this will boost our confidence." - Jason Clark The Hoyas (10-1 0-0) are back in action for their first Big East Conference matchup of the 2011-2012 season against undeafeated Louisville Cardinals (12-0 0-0).
The Hoyas have taken games step by step and have fared pretty well so far this season and hope to keep it going on the road at Louisville. “They are one of the best teams in the country and that’s one of the most difficult places to play,” he said. “They have a lot more energy at home than on the road.” - Coach John Thompson III
Hoya senior Jason Clark (15.7 pts.) had this to say about entering Big East conference play against the Cardinals. “This is where everything gets real,” he said. “We’re ready to go. I can tell guys are ready for conference play.” The fact still remains the Hoyas are "focused" and "determined" and know they still have "some things to prove and unfinished business" to take care of "one game at a time."
Louisville's last outing was a struggle against Western Kentucky."I don't have to tell you guys we didn't play good basketball tonight," coach Rick Pitino said following his Cardinals' 70-60 victory over Western Kentucky on Friday night. "But we haven't been playing good basketball the last three games."
According to Cardinal point guard and teammate Peyton Siva on sophomore reserve Russ Smith, "He makes some mistakes coming off the bench but his energy and his hard work are paying off." "He's winning us games on just pure intensity, pure heart," Pitino said of the 6-foot sophomore guard. "He's the reason we're winning but we've got to get the rest of the guys playing like that."
Our last meeting 1/31/11 went like this:
Hoyanation, as we go into the new year things will be exciting. Clearly, I think my Hoyas are on a mission!. Happy Holidays!
