Countdown to the first games of the college basketball season:  26 days

 

 

  • Ahmed Hill, Rivals 69th ranked prospect in the class of 2014, who was in attendance for Marquette Madness, saw everything he needed to see to convince him to commit to the program over the weekend.  He is a 6-foot-5 Shooting Guard from Georgia and is Buzz Williams’ third recruit in the 2014 class.

 

  • Jon Rothstein from CBSSports.com had a Q&A session with Georgetown coach John Thompson III and posted the transcript online.  The Hoyas lost Otto Porter to the NBA Draft, but JT3 is still high on this year’s squad; and rightfully so.  This is a deep and experienced team in both the front and back court.

 

  • Assistant coaches, often times overlooked, are important to a program and the CollegeBasketballTalk blog listed the 10 notable hires this offseason.  Creighton and Georgetown made the list with the moves they each made over the summer.
