a mensch?

-- Camille Powell of the Washington Post finds JT3 still hoping to lead his Hoyas to the NCAA Tournament after this weekend's loss to Boston College. Camille and I are in agreement; Georgetown's response to the BC setback will go a long way towards determining if the Hoyas, currently 33rd in the RPI, are invited to dance in March...Fred Brown, a starter on Georgetown's 1984 championship team, will be the guest commentator for Seton Hall-Georgetown, tonight's "Turn Back the Clock" game on ESPN Classic. If I only had an item of Hoyas' gear from the 1980's, I'd attend the game and lay claim to a valuable prize, a retro Patrick Ewing Georgetown uniform. A little help?

-- The legal back-and-forth has begun in Pittsburgh, with the architectural firm that designed the Petersen Events Center now claiming the State of Pennsylvania and the University of Pittsburgh caused delays and are responsible for cost overruns. An unnecessary distraction for Jamie Dixon.

-- Former St. John's "Redmen" star Bill Wennington will be inducted into the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame. Wennington, a Montreal native, played for Canada at the 1982 world championship, two World University Games and the 1984 Olympic Games.

-- Via the AP wire, a kind write-up of Villanova's surprising success. In other words, Jay has the Wright stuff. More on the Wildcats' attitude adjustment from CBS SportsLine's Gregg Doyel.

-- St. John's hired alum Chris Monasch as the school's new athletic director. Only time will tell if he is not only a Monasch, but also a mensch.
