#10 Greg Monroe's dunk against Butler Bulldogs 12.8.09

Greg Monroe had 24 points and 15 reboundsboth career highs to lead  the Hoyas to a 72-65 victory over  Butler on at the Jimmy V Cancer Classic at Madison Square Garden, New York.  Monroe, recorded his third double-double of the season as the Hoyas used their bigs size advantage to control the paint at both ends of the court.  Austin Freeman played with a lot of energy and was 4 of 5 from 3-point range and added 18 points for the Hoyas.

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.
