Brandon Bowman

Nothing could stop the drive when you have your heart set on something and it’s only a sweat away. Last year was the year Georgetown faced off with Florida and gave them the toughest game of the tourney. But it just wasn’t the year for Georgetown to make it to the Final Four. “I was our first year and everything was new to us, we just couldn’t make that run” said Brandon Bowman. After spending four years with the Hoyas Brandon is now playing basketball for the NDBL’s Bakersfield Jam. Just 2 hours away from Los Angeles , it’s the team you won’t hear about in Washington,DC. But there’s a name we know that’s dreaming of making it to the next level. “I love basketball to much” said Brandon Bowman, who grew up fast and smart. “Georgetown made us take public speaking classes and i have been fortunate to have been around the media since high school so i know how to represent myself well” . Not being drafted didn’t seem to have it’s effect on Brandon, the Wizards invited Brandon for a Draft Workout and things went great for Brandon. But you can’t change fate or the results of last year “I wouldn’t go out any other way , the way we did in the Tournament against Florida”. So i decided to catch up with Brandon and see where life has the former Hoya.

DL: What’s good Brandon, talk to me about this years Final Four.

BB: I got Georgetown going all the way in my Bracket

DL: Who would you like to see them play in the Championship game?

BB: I got them going against Florida(rematch of last year’s regional semifinal), because Florida is the only team left that can match up well against Georgetown

DL: Give me the final score

BB: 79-76 Georgetown the winner of course

DL: Did you watch Georgetown during the Big East Tournament?

BB: Yeah the last two games

DL: What was going on with you while you were watching the game?

BB: I yelled at the television, i was fussing doing things a fan would do

DL: So you would say your the biggest Georgetown fan?

BB: I would have to say yes

DL: How did you feel during the whole tournament when Georgetown won the Big East Tournament, because last year you had those unexpected shots from McNamara and things didn’t end the same for you.

BB: I felt proud to be a Hoya, that run reminded me of the moments we played last year at the Garden

DL: Where you surprised at the performance Georgetown showcased against Pitt?

BB: No i wasn’t surprised at all, i expected the game to go that way Georgetown was taking care of business

On Jeff Green

DL: During the tournament what in your opinion was Jeff Green’s best game?

BB: It had to be against Notre Dame, he took over and did his thing. He stepped his level of play up big time and i had been watching him since high school.

Life in the NBDL

DL: Since you been in the NBDL and your money has gotten long , what was your first major purchase?

BB: I got an 07 Lexus (stocked) im not into blinging it out i just keep it simple

BB: I have a condo, the furniture i need and most of my teammates live on the same block

DL: How many interviews have you been doing related to Georgetown?

BB: Several , everywhere i got i always get asked about Georgetown

DL: Before you handle business on the court who’s in your headphones?

BB: I got Lil Wayne, Eightball and MJG and some Earth Wind and Fire(what a shock!!!!) , also the old N.E.R.D

DL: I remember being in Yates and see you walking in there or just shooting threes until the lights when out are you still the same?
