It’s kind of miraculous, especially after losing one of their best players to academic reasons. Otto Porter has lead the Hoyas to national recognition and, if all goes well, a 2 or even a one seed in the NCAA tournament.
The Hoyas now have a very good chance at the final four. Why?
Momentum, momentum. This win against Syracuse will give them a lift into the Big East tournament, and that gives them a lift into March Madness. This is a proven formula with UConn, VCU, George Mason and many other teams that have reached the final four or even won a national championship.
Another incredible thing is their ability to come through big. In almost any big game they’ve played in this season, they’ve come through.
There isn’t much yet to say about the Hoyas, because nothing huge has happened yet.
But, I definitely think I’ll be saying much more – very soon.
