While many students know of only one basketball team with dominating guard play, this Tuesday night the Georgetown women’s basketball team showed that there is a plethora of backcourt talent on their squad. Fans were treated to a show on a rainy evening as the No. 13 Hoyas defeated their local rival, the No. 21 Maryland Terrapins.
Last year, another celebrated player in a long line of Georgetown big men, Greg Monroe, left the Hilltop for the bright lights of the NBA, creating a void in the Hoya frontcourt. Stepping in to fill the paint is senior Julian Vaughn. But make no mistake, Vaughn isn’t trying to fill anyone’s shoes.
Last Saturday, the Georgetown men’s soccer team celebrated on North Kehoe Field as they defeated the No. 6 University of Connecticut Huskies. Not only did the win signal a victory over one of the top teams in the nation, it also meant the Hoyas had clinched the program’s first Big East Blue Division regular season championship since 1994.
Just a few short weeks ago, the Georgetown men’s soccer team was in the midst of a five game winless streak, and seemed to be on track for another disappointing finish to the season. But, thanks to senior captain Jose Colchao and freshman midfielder Steve Neumann, the Hoyas have turned the season around, capturing six straight victories.
While the Georgetown men’s soccer team has had many ups and downs so far this season, one player has been as steady as they come. Steve Neumann is far and away the team leader in points, with six goals and five assists. What makes Neumann’s performance all the more impressive is that he is a freshman, and he has only started one game this season.
After a solid win over a tough Adelphi squad, the Georgetown mens soccer team looked to last weekend’s matchup against West Virginia to secure their first winning streak since opening weekend. The No. 21/19 Mountaineers fought hard but ultimately fell to the Hoyas on North Kehoe Field 1-0.
It’s no secret that the Georgetown men’s soccer team has struggled mightily after getting off to a great start in the 2010 season. Even though they beat Northeastern and Michigan State on opening weekend, which led to a top 25 ranking, the Hoyas have been winless since then.
Last weekend, the Georgetown men’s soccer team took to the pitch for two matchups against Ivy League opponents. Despite their tough play, the Hoyas emerged from the Ivy-clad gauntlet winless. The Hoyas opened the weekend with a Friday night matchup in the Garden State against the Princeton Tigers.
After an opening weekend that sent the Georgetown men’s soccer team into the national rankings, they felt like they could beat an opponent anywhere. Unfortunately, when the Hoyas left the friendly confines of North Kehoe Field last weekend for New Mexico’s TLC Plumbing, Heating and Cooling Lobo Invitational they left their winning streak behind.
