If history tells us anything, Dan Snyder is about to go on a serious spending spree.
Perhaps we should re-name our NBA franchise the Whoa-zards because coach Randy Wittman’s team has been pretty surprising since Nene went down with a sprained knee 15 days ago.
Forty years on, it remains quite possibly the greatest college basketball game ever played.
They didn’t pay dividends in last night’s loss, but Caps general manager George McPhee’s three deals before the NHL trading deadline were pretty sensible.
With a 56-43 record in nearly three full seasons coaching George mason, Paul Hewitt remains on the right side of the win column, but not by much, and the scale is tipping in the wrong direction.
After suffering setbacks losing Greg Whittington to injury and Josh Smith to academic issues, Georgetown has struggled to build an NCAA tournament resume. That makes Tuesday night’s game against Creighton a ‘must win.’
The Colonials are in great position to make the NCAA Tournament, which is huge for a program that was just hoping to make the Atlantic 10 Tournament two years ago.
The Caps are just three points out of a playoff spot, but it wouldn’t take much to fall to 13th place.
