Brunson leads Georgetown into the future


The walk from the Sports Information Office to the floor of McDonough Arena is a long one, but one that is even longer when you’re not sure what’s awaiting you on the other end. The stories are there. You know she raced the length of the court in a game during her senior year at…



From 16-0 to 17-3. It’s been a rough two weeks for the basketball team. The seemingly invincible team that turned Seton Hall from the tough new team with the bright future into the conference disappointment has its own problems now. Before we try and figure out what those problems are, some perspective is in order….

Twister was never this fun


As I write this, my shoulders are aching, a tiny muscle in my back is going into its tenth spasm of the hour and I’m sitting up straighter than I ever have in my life. Normally I attribute minor aches and pains to one of my long runs (especially the time that I wiped out…

The Sports Sermon


Following in the tradition of much of the 1990s, the Super Bowl was once again not Super in the least (you can only get so many one-armed goal line tackles or Scott Norwoods in a generation), with the possible exception of our remarkable ability to acquire a keg from R Street at 6 PM for…

By playing zone, the Orangemen and Fighting Irish gave the…

Men’s basketball edged by Pitt


The men’s basketball team lost for the first time this season, falling this past Saturday against Pittsburgh, 70-66.

Undefeated no more


The men’s basketball team isn’t undefeated anymore. As Head Coach Craig Esherick said after the team’s loss to Pittsburgh, going undefeated in the Big East would be next to impossible.

Everybody Loves Raymond


Ray Lewis is not a nice guy, or at least that’s what watching him on television would make you think. He’s portrayed as ineloquent, evasive, boorish and above all unlawful. He pleaded guilty to obstructing a double-murder investigation and was fined $250,000 by his boss for his involvement. Through it all, Lewis has shown no…
