" It's just the life out in the Big East " exclaimed Dick Vitale. We all know that the Big East is arguably the toughest conference to play in. No team is underestimated or overrated. The key to the tough competition is the players desire to beat the best if you want to be the best.
The key to instant success is consistency, especially when you're playing out in the Big East. The crowds there are not very welcoming and take there basketball teams very seriously. If you want the fans to love you, there is one drug they cant get enough of, winning.
Allen Iverson was quoted saying that he played every game like it was his last. This does not go out for the struggling New Jersey Nets in desperate need of success but also to the Georgetown Hoyas. The Georgetown Hoyas must play like the famous alumna Allen Iverson. If they want the fans hearts they need to win as much as possible.
They have to play every game as if it were a must win situation. Blood, sweat, and tears it takes to win the Big East. Giving up is not an option. When Georgetown played at their highest level of intensity you would see a clear example of what blood, sweat, and tears rewards you with.
They beat a number 2 team in the country Villanova by 13, a number 3 team in the country Syracuse, and a number 4 team in the country Duke. Those achievements are worthy of Georgetown being placed as the number one team in the country. However there are other teams in the country doing that as well. What Georgetown lacks is doing that on a consistent basis.
Once Georgetowns season was over after a tough loss against the Ohio Bobcats John Thompson must have realized the issue they had all year. Georgetown had an up and down season that culminated in a 3 seed for the NCAA tournament. They got upset because they didn't wear their hearts out on their sleeve. John Thompson will stress this and the experience that has been acquired from playing in the Big East will help the team win next year.
