If sentimentality is not extinct in college athletics, it surely is an endangered species. A wild 36-month (and counting) stretch of conference-hopping saw to that.
Georgetown took a step toward its future Saturday.
For the sixth time in 16 years, the Division I men's basketball tournament will return to Washington next spring, the NCAA announced Wednesday.
As top assistant for recently departed Georgetown women's basketball coach Terri Williams-Flournoy, Keith Brown had to wear a lot of hats. He led the program's recruiting efforts, handled the team's scheduling and did his fair share of coaching on the court.
Georgetown and Maryland have scheduled one men's basketball game in the past three decades.
"I think it would be safe to say that at the right time, at the proper time, those things will be discussed and dealt with," Georgetown athletic director Lee Reed said.
"Stability in terms of our model of intercollegiate athletics, our broad-based model of intercollegiate athletics that's basketball-centric, that's something that's important to us," Reed said. "That has defined us for well over a generation. We're committed to doing that. We're committed to pursuing that."
