Could the core of Catholic universities — Villanova, St. John’s and Georgetown — lure a few like-minded basketball-centric partners — Xavier, Dayton, Richmond, St. Joseph’s or Butler? — for a Garden party each March and plenty of N.C.A.A. tournament bids?

As a competitor, it’s so disheartening to go to these various schools throughout the conference and check out these state-of-the-art, expansive facilities. When you compare those facilities to the meager accommodations at McDonough, you can’t help but frown… Beyond that, it is even more frustrating to be a member of one of the 29 teams that is forced to share this small space that is McDonough… We all work hard in practice and we smell like hard work after practice, and that just litters the building as various teams are in the hallway… It’s pretty awful.

-- Monica McNutt speaking to the DC Zoning Commission about the athlete experience at Georgetown. Markel Starks, Jeff Green, and John Thompson III also spoke. The Commission approved the proposed Intercollegiate Athletic Center. Now all is left is getting architectural approval from the Old Georgetown Board and D.C. Fine Arts Commission. Oh yeah, and fundraising.

There’s not a single player on the Georgetown roster that has ever won an NCAA Tournament game — and throw in the fact that Belmont is a very good basketball team, and its it seems like an easy upset to pick. But it’s not.

I’m not buying the Belmont over Georgetown hype

During a decade in which Syracuse basketball reached the pinnacle of national prominence, the program was awash in positive drug tests and, in many cases, failed to adhere to its internal drug policy while playing ineligible players, Yahoo! Sports has learned.

Syracuse’s basketball program repeatedly violated its internal drug policy

This team doesn't have an overall physicality, and it doesn't have someone who can just break you down off the dribble. The Hoyas' system is the same as it was last year, but the difference is the ball doesn't stick in people's hands. They bring 6-foot-8, 6-9 guys from all over the place, and then they play so damn hard. The type of team that would give them trouble is a team that doesn't mind playing at that pace. Henry Sims doesn't like contact; he likes to deal in space. He's the one thing you can take away and hurt them. Our staff loves Jason Clark. He is a great leader who really gets Georgetown basketball. Makes all the little plays that people don't see. He's just a winnner.

Coach plays who he wants to play," Starks said. "It wasn't any punishment. Coach wanted to go with a different lineup, and it's working.

The Hoyas didn't magically gain natural ability or athleticism, and they're still not among the elite teams in the country. Instead, this is a testament to resilience and discipline. There are other strong candidates, but for me, Thompson is the coach of the year.
