SBNation.com: Georgetown's Big East rise is built on a stingy defense


"Still, when watching the Hoyas play defense I am struck by two things. One is how well they play as a unit, with help defenders sitting in gaps or packing the lane to limit penetration. It is difficult to get to the rim with so many big bodies in the way, and this difficulty won't be going away any time soon. And the second striking thing is Georgetown's size. During their victory against Cincinnati, five of the eight Hoyas who entered the game were 6-6 or taller. There just isn't that much room on the court to operate against them, and there are a lot of long arms ready to challenge shots all over the court."

Document Your Gamewatch


I only got one picture last night because I was mostly having minor heart attacks during the game, but the crowd at Iron Horse was strong and rocking. Shout out to wadetandy and SirHoya for wristband and headband handouts. They're most excellent hosts.
