Huskies vs. Hoyas: Series Premiere

Looks like the Dawgs will play Georgetown for the first time ever at the Wooden Classic on December 12th. It’ll be the only game this season against a team from the Big East, last year’s (regular season) power conference, and this also means the Huskies’ schedule for 2009/10 is now complete. /

Georgetown couldn’t put it together with a talented team last season, and finished 12th in the Big East. Time will tell whether the Hoya’s problems will continue into their 2009/10 effort, but no doubt, the Huskies can look forward to the grinding, all-out effort typical of nearly all of the Thompson Dynasty Hoya teams.

We’ll also get an opportunity to take a closer look G’town’s terrific big man du jour, Greg Monroe. Coming off of an impressive freshman year, word this summer is that he’s coming into the season leaner and meaner. Check out one of his best efforts from 2008/09 here.  

Interesting, though, about Monroe: The Hoyas lost in four of his five highest scoring games last season.
