Did somebody say Jay Bilas loves the Hoyas?


Georgetown's Jeff Green: Early in the year, there were a lot of question about Green's desire and motor. Was it the system that made him passive or was it his personality? Well, it very well could be neither. Green is just a sophomore, and he has blossomed into a star who can carry a team. Green simply knows how to play, and he makes winning plays on both ends of the floor. He is athletic, can handle and pass like a guard and can guard multiple positions. Green is one of the 10 best players in America, and there is no question about that in my mind. To top it off, Green is a really nice, sharp and polished young man. In fact, I have been incredibly impressed by the entire Georgetown team, which is made up of nothing but quality young men who are a credit to the game. In Winston-Salem, N.C., the Hoyas walked into the building in suits and ties, and every head turned toward a graceful, impressive-looking group. Once you sit down with them, the Hoyas are pleasant, bright and engaging young people. After having been around the program this season, it is clear that Georgetown is winning and is doing it the right way.

Good excerpt. I especially like the description of the Hoyas as quality young men. This is one area where III has got II beat. I don't think anybody would have ever used such a description for the Iverson era.

Except for the fact that Green is a junior, not a sophomore, Bilas is right on.
