Hoyas drop first conference game on the road to West Virginia 72-64

Come on Hoyanation clap it up the game is not over we have a ways to go! Let's Go Hoyas!

Never easy in the Big Easy, no Big East. Hoynation our Hoyas (13-2  3-1 Big East) fell to the Mountaineers (12-4  3-1) 72-64. Early on in conference play, it looks like it'll be race to the finish line. Senior Jason Clark (10 pts. 3 rbs. 2 ast.5 stl. 2 blk.) got in early foul trouble in the first half only playing 29 minutes tonight. Junior Hollis Thompson (20 pts. 5 rb. 2 stl. 1 blk.) led the Hoyas in scoring. He played at total of 37 minutes.

In the first half the Hoyas had 11 turnovers and only 4 in the second half. Only shooting 16% in three pointers (2-14 for whole game) in the first half didn't help matters out either, but the Hoyas were within two points at the half 29-27. The Hoya bench stepped it up a bit in the second half scoring (14 points total). Freshman Jabril Trawick (6 pts.) lead the bench in scoring and good defense and smart play.  Freshman Otto Porter (4 pts. 6 rbs.) In 19 minutes freshman Greg Whittington had (4 pts.). 

West Virginia shot 50%, the Hoyas 40.4% in field goals. Although it was a tough game on the road for the Hoyas I like the fact that they never gave up. Eleven game winning streak ended, so what great unexpected run by them young Hoyas. They'll start another streak, and hopefully streak to the finish line how's that! 

Don't worry Hoyanation we'll get them Mountaineer's back when it really matters. The Hoyas will quickly "regroup." Don't we owe them one from the Big East Tourney. That game made me tear up, but I'm just patiently waiting for that rematch in the Big East Tourney. I know it's a ways from now, but that's just my vision. The Hoyas know they cannot hang their heads, they are looking forward to Monday night against Cincinnati. That's where the focus is because WE ARE GEORGETOWN!
