Hoyas turn up the volume and dismantle the Duke Blue Devils 89-77 for John Thompson's 200th win on a snowy day in D.C.


With President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden munching popcorn in some of the best seats in the house, the Hoyas put on one of their top performances of the year against the highly seeded Duke Blue Devils in 89-77 win on a snowy day in Washington, D.C. 

“The crowd was pumped up, Obama was there, so it was exciting,” Georgetown guard Chris Wright said. “I think we all came out with a little bit more energy than usual.  We were all over the place, defensively and offensively.”  And so was Hoyanation! 

Hoyanation, it was an early Hoya redemption dream season gameday than usual because of the president's arrival.  Ask the some of the Georgetown students.  This wonderful lady named Ms. Cynthia that seated me told me the students were outside of the Verizon since 8:00 pm the previous night of the big game on CBS.  The atmospher was amazing.  When I walked into the Verizon Center, I knew something special was gonna happen today.  The excitement was definitely in the air.  The Georgetown students gave much love to President Barack Obama and some of this staff.  20,000 plus, all I can say is whoa Hoya!  LOL! 

  The lovely lady Ms. Cynthia and of course in the back, The Legend, John Thompson, Jr.

It couldn’t have been a much bigger day for Georgetown: the president attending his first Hoyas game, the first sellout of the season in the 20,000-seat Verizon Center, a crowd mostly sporting “We Are Georgetown” T-shirts in a school-sponsored “gray out,” the 200th win for coach John Thompson III, the launch of an initiative for Darfur schools, and, of course, the much-detested empire from the Atlantic Coast Conference in the building

“It was good, everything about it from who was there, to how we played against a terrific team, against a well-coached team, against a team that’s one of the best teams in the country,” said John Thompson, III.

“We could never match their emotion,” Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said. “The place was electric. Their team was electric, and they played that way for 40 minutes.”

As they ole saying goes "it must've be something in the water", LOL!  A Duke player getting a drink a water from the Hoya bench.  And Coach K was wondering what went wrong, it was something in the our water.  This is just too funny, I had to get a photo of  this.
