GU Trails Rest of the Best Due to Lack of Legitimate Practice Space

There’s a small arms race going on in college basketball, and Georgetown is falling behind. Look at the Big East and you’ll find campuses with a fresh new building being opened or at least bulldozers in place. Syracuse, Villanova and West Virginia – what do they all have in common?[Read More…]
