Hoya Freshman sensation Nate Lubick in his ice breaking monsta dunk on the Villanova Wildcats
My arrival in Philly
As I was pulling into the gate the Hoyas' team bus was right behind me, and I don't know where it came from
Georgetown Hoyas team bus
I thought I'd take a pic of the Lincoln Financial Field for the Philadelphia Eagles fans

I'm trying to think of where to start Hoyanation and friends wowwwwwww what a game, again wowwwwwww what a game. Hmm, where should start? I think I'll start from the beginning. I'll try to make this blog a quick one, lol. I doubt it though. Immediately, when I walked into the arena the Wells Fargo Center I could feel the hypeness. The Villanova band was playing in the lobby and the cheerleaders were dancing, so I want over to join them and took this photo.

I was surprised no Villanova fan said anything wrong to me because I was the only Georgetown fan grooving to their school bands vibes. Once the band stop playing I started walking over to get something to eat, but I started hearing this chant, "Let's Go Hoyas, (fast clap clap clap) repeatedly, and it was Georgetown students. The students had just gotten off of the bus and loudly and cheeringly entered the Wells Fargo with the loud chants, "Let's Go Hoyas." As they went up went up the escalator I just stopped and stared and became emotional, so I took this photo.

Once I left from where the Cats' band played, I walked over to the get the Campo's legendary Philadelphia Hoagie and yes, it was great. Whenever I go to Philly, I have to get famous hoagie or cheesesteak. I prefer the Italian Hoagie. Once I got my italian hoagie I went down to my seat behind the scorer's table not from from the bench. I ate the first half of the hoagie, and saved the other half for later. Once I came home, I finished the other half of the hoagie off with some Mickey D fries and sweet tea.

Once again it was Austin Freeman who lead his to Hoya team to bigtime thrilling road game win with 30 points. Austin has put his game into full gear now, and there's no looking back. He has surely put this team on his back. “We wanted to concentrate on getting the ball to Austin,” Georgetown point guard Chris Wright said. “It’s stupid not to give him the ball.” “Austin Freeman is unflappable in most situations,” Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. “What he did in the last 4 minutes is indicative of what he’s done for the last four years.” “Put the ball in his hands and good things happen even is he’s double-teamed or triple-teamed,” Thompson said. “If I have the opportunity to shoot I’m going to take it,” Freeman said. “Otherwise, I’ll look for a teammate. I have confidence in myself and I have confidence in my teammates.”
I hear people talking about Hoyas point guard Chris Wright not scoring in any points. Well, I just have this to say, "point guards don't have to score for their team to win, their job is to think pass first and get their teammates involved and knock down the OPEN jumper when it's, and lead and that's it...Remember Jason Kidd did and does the same thing to win, said Glidehoyas
Oh, one other important thing, did you see the Kenner League Tombs except for one on the floor today in the first half, lol, Austin Freeman, Markel Starks, Nate Lubick, Hollis Thompson, and it worked beautifully. To have some of the Hoyas that played together in the Kenner Summer League on the floor at the same pay great dividends in the first half. I just had to get this off of my mind. I've been thinking about this during and after the Villanova game.
First half score 32-26 Hoyas
