In Battle of D.C. Georgetown defeats Howard 85-73 By, Jason Landy
Caps Beat Red Wings 1-0 By, Jason Landy
Maryland vs. Georgetown Preview By, Jason Landy
Tuesday night's Maryland/Georgetown "Battle of the Beltway" should be a good one. Last year Maryland prevailed off of the strong guard play of Rasheed Sulaimon and Melo Trimble. Sulaimon has since graduated, but Trimble decided to stay in College Park for his junior season after testing the NBA Draft camps. The Hoyas have some players that could cause matchup problems for the Terrapins in center Jessie Govan, a rising sophomore post player from New York City and guard LJ Peak who is a great scorer and can fill up the stat sheet. It should be a great game from Verizon Center in downtown Washington, D.C.!
Harden Torches Wizards for 32 points By, Jason Landy
Rockets guard James Harden is one of the most lethal scorers in the NBA today. Tonight Harden was spectacular pouring in 32 points and dishing out 15 assists as the visiting Houston Rockets would use a 12-0 fourth quarter run to propel them to a 114-106 win tonight at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C.
Wizards point guard John Wall would have a superb night of his own scoring 21 points along with 8 assists. In the third quarter Wall would dish to a trailing Bradley Beal for a dunk. The assist would make Wall the Wizards all-time leader in assists breaking Hall of Famer Wes Unseld's franchise record.
Hot Shooting Grizzlies Defeat Wizards by, Jason Landy
Before a raucous crowd at FedEx Forum, Memphis Grizzlies center Marc Gasol put on a shooting show scoring fourteen points. First, Gasol hit a pivotal three from the top of the key to force overtime with under twenty seconds to play. Later, Gasol would dominate the overtime scoring with two crucial free throws and two more long threes as the Grizzlies would roll 112-103. As a team the Grizzlies would make thirteen three pointers. Leading the Wizards tonight was point guard John Wall who finished up the night with twenty two points and thirteen assists and the Wizards would fall to 0-2 on the young season. Next game for the Wizards is their home opener on November 2nd against the Toronto Raptors.
Redskins Statement Win?
It would seem that the Redskins may have overcome a slow start to this NFL season and are proving themselves defending NFC East Champions afterall. With a huge win over the rival Eagles, confidence is building and expectations are growing for the hometeam once again. However, there's a lot of football yet to be played. Even so, beating conference teams like the Eagles, Giants and Cowboys will go a long way in repeating as NFC East Champs. As you look at the remaining schedule, where to you see the "Skins" finishing this year? Are the playoffs a real possibility again this season? Your comments are encouraged.
