St. John’s In-Game Thread

By Mike

Hello, everyone. Mike here as the Hoyas get ready to start their last chance push for an NCAA Tournament bid. Only a title will assure the Hoyas of a spot, but maybe a strong showing in the tournament might be enough. That being said, the Hoyas must first focus their attention on St. John’s. The loss a week ago is still fresh in the minds of the players, and I am sure they would like nothing better than to atone for their sins in this game. I will be keeping you updated on all the action here, and feel free to add your own thoughts or questions in the comments.

For those of you who are at work, is live-streaming the games today. You can find a link to the Georgetown game here.


  1. Mike Says:

    In the 12:00 game, DePaul just knocked off Cincinnati 67-57. That is good news for the Hoyas if they can win a few games here in the Big East Tournament. The Georgetown game will tip-off in 20 minutes.

    Collision between DJ Kennedy and referee Mike Kitts. The Hoyas are down one with St. John’s shooting two free throws. Break in the action while they address the injury to Kitts.

  57. DJ Says:

    Hoyas down by 9…score in the paint with Monroe to cut the lead to 7 and call timeout.

  73. Mike Says:

    Coach Thompson calls timeout after Monroe’s basket cuts the lead to seven. Still ten minutes for the Hoyas to come back, but things not looking good right now for Georgetown fans.
