Not Your Older Brother's Georgetown

By Bailey Heaps - October 12, 2007

WASHINGTON -- Want further proof of just how far Georgetown has come since John Thompson III came aboard three years ago? Approximately 2,000 students have been lined up for almost two hours now, waiting to get a chance to witness the Hoyas' 2007 Midnight Madness.

Students began lining up around 5 p.m. to get one of a limited number of the tickets for tonight's event. Entry is free, but seating is extremely limited and will almost certainly fill up as soon as the athletic department starts to hand out tickets in the next few moments.

With the 2007 Final Four banner being unveiled, Jeff Green's Sonics jersey taking its place along side the likes of Ewing, Mourning and Iverson, top recruit Greg Monroe getting his first taste of the Hilltop, and -- oh yeah -- an extremely talented team taking the floor for the first time this season, the excitement at Georgetown is really unbelievable. With a football team that stands at a pathetic 0-6, students here at Georgetown are more than ready for the return of basketball.

Until doors to the gym open at 9 p.m. or so, a DJ will be set up in the parking lot, where the athletic department plans to replay Georgetown's Elite Eight comeback against North Carolina. Once the doors open, no one is quite sure what is in store...although rumors have been flying that rapper Lil Wayne will be in the house.

I'll be back in a bit with more.
