A very Knickerbocker Christmas

A very Knickerbocker Christmas


I thought it would be interesting to imagine how the New York Knicks would behave if they celebrated Christmas, family-style. The setting is Mike Woodson’s house. Woodson sits in a bathrobe, bleary-eyed, dreading the arrival of the various members of his team in a few hours. Suddenly, the doorbell rings. Woodson walks to the door…

Men’s basketball looking for answers

Men’s basketball looking for answers


Only six seconds separated the Georgetown Hoyas men’s basketball team (11-7, 3-4) from a crucial win against the slumping Golden Eagles of Marquette (11-8, 3-3) at the end of an uncharacteristic losing streak in Big East Conference play. Leading by three points, the Hoyas surrendered a fatal three-pointer to Marquette guard Todd Mayo, sending the…

Rise and Fire: The NBA’s lenience problem


On April 12, 2013, University of North Carolina hoops star P.J. Hairston announced that he would return to Chapel Hill for his junior season. Today, less than a year later, Hairston’s statement has become a punchline. Since that April day, shame and embarrassment have replaced any hopes fans had for a storied season from Hairston…

Men’s basketball stampedes Bisons


After a tepid fifth place finish in the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, the Georgetown men’s basketball team (4-2, 0-0 Big East) returned to Stateside ready to tackle a slate of non-conference matchups, with the first one last Saturday against the Lipscomb Bisons (3-4, 0-0 A-Sun), a relative unknown in the college basketball world with no NCAA…

All The Way: Devotion is a lost art


There is an epidemic plaguing the sports world that no one appears to have noticed. It has nothing to do with concussions, steroids, illegal hits, or J.R. Smith’s Twitter account. It involves the only people not actually involved in the games themselves: the fans. Yes you, the sports fan, the connoisseur of athletic knowledge, responsible…

Josh Smith: Big man on campus


When fans and critics talk about junior center Josh Smith, any and all discussions start with one word: big. Many gape at his measurements: 6-10, 350 pounds. Others remember how big of a flop his career at UCLA became after much hype coming out of high school, and still others wonder how big of an…

All The Way: Melo’s missed opportunity


In 2011, when Denver Nuggets superstar forward Carmelo Anthony demanded a trade to the middling New York Knicks in the early months of the season, New Yorkers rejoiced. Despite Anthony’s display of immaturity toward the Nuggets, it appeared that the stage was set for a huge turnaround, led by the imminent peak of Anthony’s superstardom…

There’s no denying Riyan


“He’s with us now. He’s on the team.” Two simple sentences from Georgetown Men’s Basketball Head Coach John Thompson III provided validation for a dream once in doubt for 6-foot-4 sophomore walk-on guard Riyan Williams, the newest and presumably final addition to the 2013-2014 Hoya roster. Williams, the son of former Georgetown and NBA basketball…
