Bowen’s Return

On the heels of reports that Moses Ayegba would not return to Georgetown next season, the school released a statement Saturday afternoon announcing that forward Aaron Bowen will come back for a fifth year on the Hilltop.

Bowen is scheduled to graduate in May, but is eligible to play next season because of a medical redshirt he received during his freshman year.

Ayegba Set to Transfer

Projections of Georgetown’s 2014-2015 men’s basketball roster gained some clarity Saturday morning when Adam Zagoria of SNY.tv tweeted that senior center Moses Ayegba will look to transfer to another school for his final year of eligibility.

Requiem for the Big East

Saturday night, the Providence College Friars were crowned as the first Big East Champions since major conference realignment last spring.  With Selection Sunday looming tonight, only three Big East teams are “locks” for the tournament field, a far-cry from the eight or nine tournament teams that the conference has had in years past.  This is probably the weekend that the impact of realignment has been most noticeable, and so it is only fitting that ESPN’s “30 for 30″ documentary series is premiering its newest documentary, Requiem for the Big East, tonight at 9 PM.
