What's the Sweet Sixteen without a little Sugar?  via www.suffolknewsherald.com

The Georgetown Lady Hoyas, led by Sugar Rodgers' 34 points and 9 rebounds, stormed into the Sweet Sixteen of the 2011 Women's NCAA Tournament with a dominant 79-57 win over the Maryland Terrapins.  The Hoyas shelled the Terrapins behind a stifling defensive effort and an offensive onslaught that saw Georgetown hit a VCU-like 13 three pointers. 

Lady Hoyas are tremendous after The Jump:

In the first half, the Hoyas started the game hot and led 13-1 early behind an 8 point surge from Rodgers.  The evil Turtles fought back to tie the game at 14, doing most of their damage at the free throw line as the Hoyas got into foul trouble early and often.  That was as close as the Terrapins got, however, as the Hoyas closed the half on a 26-12 run to take a 40-26 lead at halftime and silence the crowd of ugly Maryland fans for good.

The Lady Hoyas crushed any hope the Terps had of getting back into the game with a quick 10-2 run to start the second half, and Georgetown led comfortably the rest of the way.  I would have more to say about the second half, but the morons at ESPN2 decided to show me the fabulous upset of 2-seed Xavier by the Lady Cardinals of Louisville.

At the time of posting it is unclear whether the Maryland men's basketball team was in attendance at the game at the Comcast Arena.  The Maryland men's basketball team was not invited to the NCAA Tournament, the NIT Tournament, or any other Tournament, so they certainly had some free time.  Next up for Georgetown are the hated UConn Huskies, a team that has beaten the Hoyas twice already this season in games that were closer than the final scores indicated.  The Lady Huskies, the #1 team in the country, are coached by Geno Auriemma.  Geno Auriemma is a man.

Special shout-out to @GUPepBand@GeorgetownWBB, and @wgtbsports for holding it down on the twittertubes all game long.

The Georgetown Lady Hoyas are our only hope for salvation, and I'm happy to jump on the bandwagon.  Follow me!  Follow me to freedom!
