The Hoyas glide up to north to face the Providence Friars in Big East action tomorrow night



Hoyanation and friends, once again the mighty Hoyas ( 17-5  7-4) will be on the road again to Rhode Island to visit the Providence Friars (12-11  4-7 BE).  The Friars dropped their third game in a row last weekend with a hard-fought 82-79 defeat against Marquette. That left Providence at 4-7 in the Big East, in 12th place in the 16-team league.  The Friars have lost their last three games against Cincinnati, Syracuse and Marquette.  It doesn't get any easier for the Friars going into tomorrow nights game against the mighty Hoyas.  Although the Friars record speaks for itself the Hoyas remained focus, determined and ready to play this game with a "sense of urgency".  The Hoyas last played the Friars at home on Jan 10, 2009, and came out with the win 82-72. 

The Hoyas are coming off a big win againt the #2 team in the land, the Villanova Wildcats.  This game was a very impressive game played by the Hoyas as they snow plowed the Wildcats to a 103-90 victory on blizzardry snowy day in the nation's capital at the Verizon.  Although D.C. had record breaking snow, this did not stop the crowd of about 10,000 to cheer the mighty Hoyas onto victory.  The student section played a key in this win also as the Hoyas knew their peers had their backs.  "I was very surprised to see them come out. I didn’t think there was going to be a lot of people here, but them being here really helps us out and really brings a lot of energy to our play.”—Georgetown guard Jason Clark on the crowd at the Villanova game.

I guess you could say the Hoyas have all the right moves in all the right places because WE ARE GEORGETOWN!  These two songs played on ESPN after timeout before commerical break, nice!
