John Thompson III expects Hoyas to make deep NCAA run
Question of the Day
While the selection event was still ongoing, Thompson dispatched some assistants to start breaking down the Eagles of Florida Gulf Coast, a state university in Fort Myers that admitted its first student in 1997 and made the NCAAs in its second year of Division I eligibility by winning this month’s Atlantic Sun tournament.
“I may be the only coach in the country to feel this way: I don’t go into it worrying about what are we going to be seeded,” Thompson said. “It’s the opposition, because there can be times when you can be a third seed and you have a better matchup than a two seed or a four seed, and so it’s all about Florida Gulf Coast as opposed to our seed.”
Although his team is young, Thompson has a major reason to accelerate his expectations this year. This might be the last chance he gets with Porter, a sophomore who remains cagey about whether he plans to bolt for the NBA this summer.
“I don’t know yet,” Porter said Sunday. “We’ll see.”
