Being undefeated has a nice ring to it. For George Washington coach George Lonergan, though, getting better is more important.
Gregg Marshall sat in his office on the campus of Wichita State on a cold January morning, his familiar eye glasses set aside, and gazed at the championship nets nailed to the wall.
Davante Gardner and Jamal Ferguson are Tidewater natives who have relocated 750 miles northeast to help one of college basketball's top programs. They are proof that Marquette, a Jesuit school of 12,000 students in downtown Milwaukee, has made some recruiting inroads in the southeastern corner of the Commonwealth – not exactly a logical geographic match.
Jim Larranaga's second year at Miami ended about as sourly as possible. The Hurricanes' 16 first-half points were a season low. They made only 5 of 26 first-half attempts. Marquette contested some with its man-to-man defense, but Miami did manage to create some open looks. Usually the result was the same.
Which is the only region in the NCAA tournament where the top four seeds advanced through the first weekend? Yep, Verizon Center is stuck Thursday night with No. 1 Indiana vs. No. 4 Syracuse and No. 2 Miami against No. 3 Marquette.
Otto Porter scored 11 of his 21 points after a momentum-shifting technical foul on Marquette coach Buzz Williams, and No. 15 Georgetown won a stop-and-start game of turnovers and whistles Monday night, beating the 18th-ranked Golden Eagles 63-55 to move into a tie for second in the Big East.
Davante Gardner made two free throws with 8.3 seconds left and Marquette had to hang on while No. 15 Georgetown missed a deciding free throw before getting a 49-48 victory Saturday.
Georgetown fumbled its date with destiny on Saturday.
The Redskins are awful, and the Capitals are disappointing. The Nationals could be a year away; Mark Turgeon's Terrapins might be two. And the Wizards will be 0-7 unless they somehow manage to upset the New York Knicks on Friday at Verizon Center.
Marquette athletic director Steve Cottingham resigned Thursday, parting ways with a program facing scrutiny for recent legal issues.
Marquette coach Buzz Williams says guard Todd Mayo has signed a letter of intent with the Golden Eagles for his 2011 class.
Jimmy Butler missed a free throw early in the second half, and rather than racing back to stop North Carolina on the fast break, he simply hung his head.
Leslie McDonald remembers walking through the center of campus and down the main drag in Chapel Hill, N.C., last year and getting a sickening, uncomfortable feeling.
Buzz Williams knows having a roster filled with former junior college players sticks out a bit, especially when facing a blue blood program like North Carolina.
His voice hoarse, his eyes moist, Buzz Williams took a reflective 9-minute, 27-second chronicle of his career that not even CBS could have interrupted with a TV timeout.
"I think George Washington is really good," Marquette coach Buzz Williams said. "I think playing against multiple defenses is always hard to prepare for. We did a good job contesting their 3s. When Creek and (Nemanja Mikic) get hot, they're a completely different team. That helped."
"I think we move the ball," Williams added. "Rarely is the ball getting stuck. Since last Friday, we've been doing it right. We are preparing to do it right."
