Two days later it's FINALLY off to the Verizon Center aka "The Phone Booth!" College basketball is finally here. From where I live the phone booth is only a 20 minute ride with little traffic if I'm driving. Most game days I drive to the Huntington Metro, park my car, and catch a train right to the arena. Takes about 40 minutes because of regular stops.
It'll be like reunion from last season. There are special moments to come this season just one game at a time. Hoyas vs. Dukes will be the game to get things started this season for me. Although the season has already started this game is the official start to the "Road To The Final Four."
Hoyas Tip of the Game Jason Clark on the 2-3 zone:
Looking at the A10's positioning, the Dukes are the bottom of the conference this season. This may be a team that can raise up during the season. The Hoyas know this and know it won't happen with them. They never underestimate any teams no matter what the stats say. We know our Hoyas are focused and on their own task to stay focused and play the way they're suppose to play no matter the score of the game.is.
I hear people saying certain games are "cupcake" games and everything. I can understand this from a fans' view, but the truth of the matter to the coaches and players this just isn't the case. Chemistry means everything. You can gain chemistry of course from winning but even during losses especially tough losses.
Duquesne is in its first season under head coach Jim Ferry, who led LIU Brooklyn to back-to-back NCAA Tournament appearances. The Dukes return two starters from last year’s 16-15 team, as they look to bounce back from a 69-66 loss to Albany on Friday. The last time the program has opened with back-to-back road games was during the 1990-91 campaign.
