    I dunno. Weren’t we up In 2nd half of a close loss at G’town, after having already beaten them once? We got wiped off the court in our first matchup against Creighton and barely beat them in a junkyard game at home.

    Gtown and not even close. To even be considered for an at large bid we need to win 2. If Creighton loses today they are eliminated from the bubble and when we beat Gtown per the assumption we likely pass them too. Also Creighton’s offense has 5 on the arc with many screens and dives to the basket making it impossible to play two bigs in man to man (especially Hankins) and zone is a crapshoot against a three point team like them.

    I don't know. Gtown frosh guards looked very good against Marquette tonight. Actually thought if they made NCAA tourney they could win a game with those two. Only advantage is we'd have the older guards, but weren't they destroying us at home? Granted we came back and won.

    Though reality is, our defense has been very good these last few weeks. I honestly believe we can beat anyone in this tournament. Though strangely, I'm more nervous about the first round game over the second. Im probably crazy, but nova has less depth than we do, imo.

    I believe we know this much: whoever wants it the most and whoever stays focused over 40 minutes has the best chance of winning any of these games from here on in.

    And I direct that comment directly at Quentin Goodin.

    You are right... However 1 huge factor played into that. That is at no point did they play 7 straight basketball minutes with no whistles or TV time outs. Trust me that matters. Going 100 % that long is brutal and it happened twice in the Butler game.

    At this point though who cares. We got the right matchup. Creighton is much better for us. I disagree with the person who said we can't play 2 bigs. Creighton will have nothing inside. I'll give them all the three they want. If they hit 15 to win I'll take that chance. Our bigs will brutalize them inside all game

    Georgetown has the guards and Govan inside. He will play possessed. I absolutely do not want to see them until the finals because they can be better at the guard position and Govan can cancel out our bigs

    How is he performing, shooting from deep?

    I know he's trying and he wants to contribute, but he is mostly failing from behind the arc. And he can still be to casual with his passes.

    It's not about balance in a grading system at this point; it's not about the good with the bad.

    Now, as we go to NYC, we need him firing on all cylinders for 40 minutes, making good decisions virtually 100% of the time. Margin for error is crunching down to VERY THIN.

    Iím done beating around the bush on this. Anyone who doesnít see Qís obvious value is a fucking idiot. The beating he takes on here is absolutely absurd. He can do no right.
