Hoyas and company "Set It Off" at Georgetown U's Midnight Madness

We Are Georgetown
2011 Midnight Madness

Set It Off

It seemed as if the night went by quite fast. Midnight Madness, a night most college basketball junkies such as myself live for was finally here, and it sure felt good.  Of course the night was spectacular and magical especially for the the little ones.  From the students to the alumni and a special shout out to the many former Georgetown players.  

Nice to see Patrick Ewing's son Patrick Ewing Jr. get his NBA #22 Charlotte Hornets jersey unveiled on the McDonough Gynasium wall along with other former Hoyas' NBA framed jerseys.  The creative student dance groups performed really well.  Both, the women and mens teams put on a dazzling dancing performance with the music and act of their choice both coaches included.  I took lots of photos, so I'll put a few up with some jams while you're looking at them.
