There was no view of the Capitol building from my hotel room in DC, my destination after my game in Austin, Texas, as the windows faced the hotel's indoor atrium. It's still a nice view.
I was in DC for the hoops game between the Louisville Cardinals and the Georgetown Hoyas. The usually fearsome Georgetown team has suffered through a horrible season of conference play. Although they have a win against Connecticut to their credit, the Hoyas find themselves near the bottom of the Big East standings. This night would again prove that the Big East is the most unforgiving conference in men's basketball, as John Thompson III's team would lose its fourth game in five tries. Louisville, behind 22 points from New Jersey product Earl Clark, powered past Georgetown 76-58.
