We in South Bend did get to see the closing ten seconds of the game in DC before switching back to Verne Lundquist and Greg Anthony try to keep the viewers' interest in a really bad game.
About the Hoyas. Before Jesse Sapp miraculously tossed the ball through the hoop in celebration, Georgetown was 3-20 from downtown. Without Roy Hibbert, Georgetown really does not have a post presence. 6'11" frosh Monroe scored 9 of his 13 from the charity stripe. As long as the Irish can rely on Harangody to play good interior defense with no double-team help while closing out the shooters, we should be able to take down this team at the Joyce Center.

So cool! Christmas come early for a blogger. I'll spare you the rest and have some more fun (while figuring how to format this stuff) on my own time.
