Call me paranoid but I have a bad feeling about today’s Georgetown game. Maybe it’s some residual angst left over from watching the Hoyas storm back and almost pull the upset at the Verizon Center in February. I just think they maybe have finally figured out what they need to do against SU. I’m trying to take comfort in the fact that their comeback in that game coincided with both of our centers being in deep foul trouble, something that is not overly likely to recur. But I just have a feeling that they might have the momentum on their side. With them having played yesterday (and played pretty well, considering) I think SU very well could come out a little rusty, a little tight, or without sufficient intensity.
Plus, I am concerned about SU’s injury situation. There has been a lot written about this game but I have not heard one peep about whether the guys are feeling better or not. The whole storyline after the Louisville game was “Now SU gets five days to rest and heal up.” But I have found nothing telling me whether the time off has actually helped Johnson’s hand or Joseph’s knee. And my assumption, having not heard any news, is that the coaches don’t want any news to get out, which leads me to believe that the injuries are still a problem.
I’ll be quite happy to be wrong about this but as it stands now I fear for today’s results. Game on, though, now. Time to stop worrying, crack a beer and scream at the TV.
