A Good Head On His Shoulders

The New York Times's report on the game between Georgetown and Marquette contains an interesting nugget about Roy Hibbert. Unable to sleep on Friday night, Hibbert did what every die-hard Hoya should do...he watched a replay on a Hoyas's game from the mid-80s.

Hoyas center Roy Hibbert said he was nervous Friday night, because he did not want to disappoint the alumni at the Verizon Center on Saturday. Hibbert, unable to sleep, watched a replay of a 1985 game between Georgetown and St. John’s at Madison Square Garden.

“I look back at those games like, Wow, I get to put on a jersey and play and represent Georgetown,” Hibbert said.

Hibbert, a 7-foot-2 junior, said he did not fall asleep until nearly 4 a.m., but he was not sluggish against the Golden Eagles, finishing with 23 points and 11 rebounds.
Now, that's a player who loves the program!

P.S. - IBP, inquiring minds are still waiting for the recap of your exclusive interview.
