Hoyanation and friends the summer of 2009 was the start of the "redemption dream season". I was at the James "Jabbo" Kenner Memorial Summer League and I heard that the Hoyas were going to play Butler this season. I was excited about this, and I couldn't wait. I've been hearing so much trash talking and all kinds of stuf, but I knew the Hoyas were gonna play hard, play smart, and have fun in this game against the Butler Bulldogs They did exactly that, they won 72-65 in a key non-conference matchup. Yes, there were lots of turnovers on behalf of the Hoyas, but the Hoyas overcame this with good rebounding and great defense. The Hoyas's defensive execution play a key role in this game. Great "communication" is always the key to success especially when you are a unit.
