PHOTO: Georgetown Wears Pink Shoes Vs. Pittsburgh, Loses

The Georgetown Hoyas suffered a pretty stunning loss to Pittsburgh on Saturday, and Casual Hoya has a theory about why:

A long week after a narrow victory over Rutgers, the Georgetown Hoyas suffered their worst loss of the season to a Pittsburgh team who entered the game 1-7 in league play... all while wearing pink shoes for breast cancer awareness. The pink shoes continued a familiar trend of alternative footwear being correlated with poor performances-- as did the Hoyas loss immediately upon reaching the top ten, staple of the last several years.

Ah yes, the pink shoes. The Hoyas wore them as part of Jordan Brand's breast cancer awareness initiative, and lost in them. That won't make too many fans happy, even if they believe in the cause.
