Game 20: Georgetown 72, Connecticut 69

Saturday, January 9, 2010, 11:29 PM
WASHINGTON - I'm here for the weekend for some family stuff, and since I had the afternoon free I headed downtown to watch Georgetown and Connecticut face off at the Verizon Center.

After a weekend full of losses, last night was much more fun. All the local teams but St. Joe's won, and someone had to be on the wrong end at the Liacouras Center. Even Penn finally got its first win of the season. Here's a quick wrapup of the action. There's also postgame audio from St. Joe's-Temple... Read more

Though we heard from Joe Lunardi on Saturday, it's been a while since we last checked out Bracketology. Now seems as good a time as ever to do something about that, especially with the Boise State-TCU national championship game on TV in the background. (Oh well.) Let's start with Villanova, which...

'We'll watch every play of the game'

Sunday, January 3, 2010, 12:05 AM
On any number of occasions in the past, we have seen Fran Dunphy express displeasure with his team's performance during a game. But once the final horn sounds, Dunphy always steps to the podium and speaks with the composure of a Center City steakhouse sommelier. (Look it up.) Dunphy was his usual... Read more
