HOYA FUNK EXPRESS!
TROUBLE FUNK EXPRESS
D.C. IS OUR PLAYGROUND!
Hoyanation and friends, I heard a big basketball anaylst and a few folks talking about a this being a "trap game" for the Hoyas. I said to myself, "why would they want to mess everything up talking negative?" The Hoyas have been winning and have just won a really big game on the road in Kansas City, Missouri against the #11 Missouri Tigers in a slugfest! So, why all of a sudden the Hoyas just lay down their weapons. This leaves me shaking my head especially hearing some Hoya fans talking this trash about a "trap game." The only thing that was "trapped" today was the Utah State Blue Aggies.
If you're a true blue and grayer you should be a yeahsayer not a naysayer. Wow, I just made that up, lol, but yes, stay positive an encourage our Hoyas. This is what they need to hear. Let the opposer's talking this mess, not Hoya fans. “There’s no space in there for trap games, right?” Thompson III said. “With this preseason schedule, hopefully it’ll develop that hardness, that mindset” for the Big East schedule.
Once again, I had a chance to see our Hoyas (8-0) run in the locker room before tip off and there was no doubt in my mind they were ready! The Hoyas are "clearly" on a mission. I knew this would be a good game. and it was more so in the first half with the Utah State Blue Aggies (5-2) getting buckets inside the paint trying to get our bigs in foul trouble. Julian Vaughn had to sit with two early fouls. It seems the fouls were going one way against the Hoyas for a moment there, until the mighty Hoyas realized they had to take this game, so they "pressed" on. The Hoyas used ferocious press to end the half.
“If you told me they were only going to make a couple of 3's, I would have told you we were going to be right there. Unfortunately, they shot a ton of free throws,” Morrill said. “We had some harebrained fouls, some harebrained passes.. The credit goes to Georgetown for getting us rattled.”

"We have guys that can really aggressive and can attack the basket, and today was a little different," guard Chris Wright (21 points) said. "They were really playing us around the 3-point line, so we had to penetrate and get in gaps. I think there's multiple ways we can be effective on the offensive end, and as long as our defense is solid, I think we'll be all right."
AND THE BEAT GOES ON HOYAS!
WE ARE GEORGETOWN!
