After nearly three years apart, longtime rivals Georgetown and Syracuse reunited Saturday at Verizon Center. The Hoyas and Orange played two halves of basketball, but the scene wasn't whole.
There are games and there are games. Any Georgetown-Syracuse meeting, especially the first between former Big East rivals since 2013, falls in the latter category.
Isaac Copeland, Georgetown's second-leading scorer, officially committed to the men's basketball program on March 10, 2013. That specific date wasn't by accident.
Roy Hibbert, his 7-foot-2 frame wedged into a standard-sized chair, dutifully organized various ticket requests before Wednesday's game against the Washington Wizards.
