Hell Hath Frozen Over

This actually came out before Georgetown's thumpin' of the Mountaineers last night, but I just caught it. Dick "Dukie" Vitale named Georgetown team of the week in his Weekly Awards.

TEAM OF THE WEEK: Georgetown

John Thompson III is doing a super job with the Hoyas. Georgetown won at Louisville (73-65) on the night the Cardinals named the court after legendary coach Danny Crum. Then the Hoyas blew out Marquette, 76-58. Watch out for this Georgetown team as the duo of Roy Hibbert and Jeff Green are dynamic.

When an ACC apologist like Vitale starts singing your praises you know that you must be playing some impressive basketball.

More praise from Vitale in USA Today: "Thompson has resurrected the Hoyas program at Georgetown. His coaching tree of course includes his pops, John Thompson, who guided Georgetown to the 1984 title. JT III played under Princeton's Pete Carril, one of the brightest minds to ever work the sideline. What did JT III learn under Carril and his dad? That discipline, shot selection and defensive toughness are a formula for success. This year Georgetown's inside duo of Roy Hibbert and Jeff Green could take the Hoyas a long way in the tournament. They're riding an eight-game winning streak after blowout victories Saturday against Marquette and Monday against West Virginia."
