The Mighty Hoyas Glide up to "The City of Brotherly Love" to play the Temple Owls



So far, it's been a challenging season for the mighty Georgetown Hoyas,  and they have passed all tests with flying colors.  Hoyanation and friends, the Hoyas (8-0) glide to the City of Philadelphia to take on Atlantic 10 Conference's Temple Owls (5-2).  The Hoyas have been playing nearly perfect basketball, and look to be a "major threat" this season in the college basketball world.  Senior Austin Freeman leads the Hoyas at (20.3 pts. per outing) and senior Julian Vaughn, leads the Hoyas in rebounding at (6.9) a game. 

Sophomore Vee Sanford is leading the Hoyas in three categories, (field goal pct. 62.5, free throws 100.0, and  3's at 66.7 pct.). Senior Chris Wright is the leader in assists for the Hoyas at (6.8 per game and steals at 2.1 pg)

"I think in general, as a team, we want to create a lot of our offense off of our defense,” Wright said. “I think if we get a lot of steals and put a lot of pressure on people on the court, it will be to our advantage.”

The Hoyas are coming out of their finals, but are taking their season and college life one step at a time. This indeed helps them to understand life through education and basketball.  I think this is a great thing for our Hoyas with such a bright future and future leaders of our country in some capacity one way or the other.

The Owls shared last season's regular season title with Xavier, both were 14-2. The Owls were two time defenders of the A10 tourney championship and their last conference championship win was over the Richmond Spiders 56-52 in 2010.  With an appearance in the NCAA's the last two years, the Owls lost to Arizona State 2009 and Cornell 2010 in both first rounds of the tournament.  Temple's last win came against Maryland 64-61 in Washington, DC.  This season the Owls are undefeated at home at (2-0).  Ramone Moore leads Temple in scoring at (12.3 pts.)  Lavoy Allen is the leading rebounder at (6.9) game for the Owls.

The city of Philadelphia  is known for its hoagies, scrapple, soft pretzels, water ice, Tastykake, and is home to the Philly cheesesteak.  Pat's King of Steaks is The First and The Originator of the Philly Steak and Cheesesteak in Philadelphia

Pat's King of Steaks will have one Hoya customer feasting, Glidehoyas!

The Liberty Bell is an iconic symbol of American Independence, located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

And of course Philly is known for the filming and making of the famous movie, "Rocky".  This statute of Rocky was donated to the City of Philadelphia by actor Sylvester Stone, who played the role of Rocky.  The bronze statue of Rocky briefly sat at the top of the museum's steps, but now the statue has moved and now is located at the bottom of the stairs at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
