It's Hoops Season... (With a Little Football Too!)

The football signing period is one month away, beginning Feb. 7. And basketball season is heating up with conference play, including Thursday's showdown between No. 1 St. John's and No. 3 DeMatha at Trinity University at 6:30 p.m. (Anyone else think Georgetown Coach John Thompson III might be in attendance to see All-Met guards/Hoya recruits Austin Freeman and Chris Wright?)

I'd like to make this a daily gathering, whether it is to talk about the previous night's action, what college coaches were in certain gyms or football recruiting visits. So if you have any tips, send them to me at

I caught a few games over the holidays, and the most intriguing player I saw was Largo center Maurice Sutton. The 6-foot-10 junior hasn't played much before this season and he reclassified this school year. But he is agile and has some talent and is attracting some major college interest. I'll have more about him later this week.

Let's not just make this game about Georgetown, Josh. You will probably also see Mason coach Jim Larranaga and/or his assistants in attendance as well. Afterall, Isaiah Tate (DeMatha) and Vlad Moldoveanu (St. John's) will be two of best players on the floor, and they have both already committed to Mason for next season.

Gtown is getting one hell of a backcourt next year with Freeman and Wright. JTIII will definitely be there to watch these pups play. He really does a phenomenal job on the recruiting circuit, specifically in the DC area. Gtown is doing all the right things (short term and long term) to bring back and keep their program at the pinnacle of college BB. Hoyaparanoia is gonna hit like a Tsunami soon.
