Let the Madness Begin: I would contend that if you created all-star teams from each school during the modern era, there have been 3 programs at the top of the list including the Georgetown Hoyas. The other two schools do not include UCONN or Syracuse. They do not even include Duke University. Without naming names the other schools reside in Westwood, and the other is the alma mater of his Airness. When you think about Hoya basketball you think of the players: Ewing, Mourning, Mutombo, Iverson, McDonald, Spriggs, Harrington, Williams, Jackson, Wingate, Floyd, Smith, Tagliabue, Barry, Duren, Shelton, Green, Hibbert, Monroe, Graham, and Sweetney. Georgetown has been the leader and through its innovation, and pressure defense has changed the way basketball is played. Georgetown helped found the Big East conference. I am concerned as everyone else is about the future of the Big East conference. Nobody can predict what will happen next for the Big East. JT III, Lee Reed and the athletic department believe it is key for Georgetown to remain a top program in college basketball. Georgetown University is one of the schools that made the Big East conference what it is. Let's keep the faith and remember that: We are Georgetown!
