"Texas coach Rick Barnes and NC State coach Mark Gottfried confirmed Jimmy V Classic matchups for Tuesday, Dec. 4 at Madison Square Garden. Texas will play Georgetown and NC State will play Connecticut. "
It is great to see the Hoyas get involved in these high visibility OOC match-ups. I look forward to attending them and hope the exposure in the NY metro will help recruiting in the area. However, I feel for you DC folks and the ultimate success of this program will be determined on how well we play on our homecourt and how many tickets the program sells. It would be good to see a few marquee games at the Verizon center, I just wonder how easy that is now with so many neutral court opportunities available to major programs. At least the BE slate should be a little better this season with SU, UL, etc expected to make visits.

This would make us "New York's College Team," wouldn't it?
We calmly grabbed our free beers and sauntered out. To add to the fun, we made T shirts that read "thanks for the memories... of kicking your AS#!" on the back along with a picture of a hand crushing an orange which we calmly unveiled in the final few minutes so the thousands of Cuse fans sitting behind us could enjoy. May have been the perfect day.--DaymondMyles
