Basketball Is Our Religion

Tonight, before the Hoyas defeated Marquette at the Verizon Center, the Stonewalls unveiled their newest tifo – a 25′x20′ banner featuring images of characters representing fellow departing Big East schools St. Johns, Seton Hall, Marquette, DePaul, Villanova and Providence, and reading “Basketball Is Our Religion.”

The tifo echoes Georgetown coach John Thompson III’s sentiments that while the schools forming this new league each value their Catholic identity, it is their long tradition of and commitment to basketball that will bond them together.

The Stonewalls support these schools’ trailblazing move and want to demonstrate to the sports world that fans of the “Basketball 7″ are passionate and excited for this new venture.
