The exodus continues

We interupt football season for this bit of basketball news.

Greg Monroe, the nation's top basketball recruit from Helen Cox High School outside of the New Orleans area, has committed to Georgetown.

Monroe, a 6-foot-10 power forward/center, was on the LSU visit list for last weekend's football game with Florida.

But let's face it, Georgetown was in the Final Four last year. LSU was in it the previous year. But basketball is big at Georgetown and football is big at LSU.

Still, it's not good for the state when it is exporting basketball stars, whether it's D.J. Augustin at Texas or soon to be Greg Monroe at Georgetown.

All that is left for Monroe is to finish out his senior season here in the state.
