Friars, Hoyas face-off on Christmas Eve

Two great Hoya rebounders this season Hollis Thompson and Otto Porter (Dick Vitale on Porter, "look at him, he's everywhere!")

(11-3  0-1 BE)


(11-1  1-0 BE)

Keep on Movin' Hoyas!

Hoya Saxa hoya saxa hoya saxa! We Are -- George-town! I'm just as ready for this game as any other. The Memphis and Louisville wins over the holidays were magical to me. Two Christmas gifts from the Hoyas! I hope everyone is having a great holiday season. One more game for the holiday season on Christmas Eve what a better way to end the Hoyaliday season with a win against Providence.

The Hoyas in their first Big Conference game are coming off of a big road win against Louisville. The Hoyas stepped their game up knowing it's conference time. Georgetown is enjoying its longest run since an 11-game streak Jan. 17-Feb. 24, 2007. The Hoyas won 30 games that season before losing to Ohio State in the Final Four.They have continued to play smart, unselfish, determined basketball. 

Three freshmen reserves combined for 25 points in Wednesday's 71-68 upset at previously unbeaten No. 4 Louisville. "You say freshman class, and they are freshmen and this is their first Big East experience, but they've been doing that since the summer," coach John Thompson III said. "It's a group that plays hard and competes."

The Providence Friars are coming off of a big 91-67 loss to St. John's in their last outing on the road. Providence, which has dropped 16 straight conference road games, is seeking to recover after its seven-game win streak was snapped in its Big East opener, a 91-67 loss at St. John's on Tuesday. The Red Storm shot 56.5 % the worst mark allowed by the Friars all season. So, we all know the story, Providence will be coming out fired up, but one thing I do know, the Hoyas will come out "more" fired up than the Friars because they already know the deal. It's Big East play!
