Robert Churchwell going to Good Counsel

Robert Churchwell, a Gonzaga graduate and former Georgetown standout, has been named boys’ basketball coach at Good Counsel. Churchwell replaces Blair Mills, who resigned last month after four...

Rivalry talk (again)

Getting to play Georgetown might be easier, but certainly not easy. Since the flap between the two schools caused Anderson to announce that he was not going to let the Terps play the Hoyas in any sports if they couldn’t play against each other in basketball, there’s been some thawing in the relationship. Anderson mentioned Thursday night that the Hoyas’ field hockey team will be practicing and playing at Maryland this season while Georgetown’s field is being refurbished. But he also admitted that there is one rather large obstacle – alluding to the size of former men’s coach John Thompson – in the discussions about basketball going any further.


Big East basketball-first schools reportedly meet on topic of dissolution

The pressure on Big East commissioner Mike Aresco reached blazing proportions when it was revealed the conference’s basketball-first schools met Monday in New York City to discuss their options...

More info about BE TV negotiations

The Big East basketball schools like Providence, Georgetown, St. John's, and Villanova, will never be better off, financially, on their own. Despite what is often claimed, those schools, were they to form their own conference and leave their association with the football-playing Big East schools, would get only a fraction of the television money on their own compared to what they get by being in a conference with football playing members.

Boubacar Aw named HS coach

Hoggard has announced its new girls basketball coach for the 2012-2013 season: Spanish teacher and former player at Georgetown University Boubacar Aw.

Jason Clark working out for the Wizards

The combo guard with go-go gadget arms and a perimeter touch joined five other draft prospects including Kentucky's Darius Miller and Florida State's Bernard James on the Wizards practice court for a pre-draft workout. "It’s kind of weird coming in this arena and not having on a Georgetown jersey," Clark said. "It’s weird, but I’m willing to work hard to try to play here again." Including the Wizards – a team in need of additional backcourt depth - Clark has worked out for three teams including the Heat and Spurs. More interested squads to come, starting with the Bulls on Friday, all leading up to the June 28 draft.


Georgetown still developing great bigs, but in a different way...

The beauty is in the simplicity. Much has been made about the Princeton-style offense that Georgetown runs under Thompson, about how difficult it is to defend and prepare for. But what is unique...


U of L wants out...

Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich told the Big East board of directors that the Cardinals want to be in the Big 12 or the ACC, opting for transparency by making members aware of his...


Removing the one and done syndrome...

Unsure if this material has been posted, however. This is a nice piece from Steve Kerr on the importance of development in the rigors of the NBA. Hopefully the Wizards organization will adopt...


Nice article about the importance of 'development'

I'm unsure if the article has been pushed out, however, I believe this is some good material in the aspect of kids coming out early to the NBA (with the lack of development). Rather it focuses on...


Something to consider

Should the Wizards go after the services of Nate McMillon (just been released by the Trailblazers)? Granted his offense is very slow paced, however he truly focuses on D and would like to set the...


Less talent, but a better 'team'...

A pretty good article about the state of the Hoyas this year! ''It wasn't all roses last year,'' senior center Henry Sims said. ''We've grown from that. ''This year we've just bought into the...


Take heed...

This makes me proud, I'm glad someone see the ineffectiveness of SUck basketball.... When it comes to the professional basketball careers of Syracuse Orange stars, Carmelo Anthony's success is...


Changing up the Hoya Jerseys

I was searching on the history of the Hoyas jerseys and I was wondering could the Hoyas go back to the White (home) and Black (away) from time to time and not just on a special occasion. Or even...


Just an observation from 48hrs that has passed by...

My fellow casual members, Yes it was a tough loss (so therefore no need to beat a dead horse about the game), however no one (from what I've seen on CH) has talked about was the 'defensive...


Any thoughts of obtaining Sanchez Could Mark Sanchez be the QB that the organization would consider for next year's team? If the team is...


Regarding the QB roster

Everyone is very opinionated in regards who should be the starter for Week 1.  Honestly I believe that we as fans (some delusional than others) are really missing something. Should the Redskins...


Jon Stinchcomb released from the Saints....

Is it possible for the organization to take a look at him, perhaps in a back up role?  I believe you can never have enough depth and fill it with quality players.  Also he's a high character type...


Former Redskins model is motivated from last year's dismissal...

Devin Thomas was stunned last year when Redskins coach Mike Shanahan cut him midseason and then questioned his work ethic and commitment to football. It was an analysis that the former second-round...

How much of a 'drastic' change would occur...

If JT3 changed up his strategy and run a different offense? We as fans understand as the Prince-town if ran correctly is a thing of beauty (just like any offensive scheme), however would this...


Do we as fans get 'too' caught up in *star* rankings?

Just wondering due to the power of the internet and 'expert' opinions, how do we as fans stay grounded as to not get too caught up in the value of certain 4 or 5 star characters traits? As you can...


So now what....

That JT3 has pretty much secured a very nice recruiting class.  The situation "we" as delusional fans have to accept is that this team will be 'severely' young and will get exposed (ie, the...
