Life Is Better
I couldn't wait for this game. It was my son Chavis' birthday, and also it was GU Alumni Jason Clark's birthday, and guess what? He attended the game last night seeing his little brothers' the Georgetown Hoyas beat the Providence Friars 74-65. The day was bittersweet for me. I so wanted the Hoyas to win this game for my son, and they did. This was the highlight of my day, my Hoyas.
The played relentless with a sense of urgency for most of the game. I was impressed at the energy the Hoyas put out offensively and defensively. The smiles were there. This told me the confidence level for the Hoyas was high. The communication and point communication were a sight to see and hear. The Hoyas reserves were key with two (Smith/Bowen) scoring a total of 15 points. I think most fans were excited and surprised to see the great play put on display by redshirt sophomore Aaron "Air Time" Bowen. This dude has bounce!
When Bowen arrived on the Hilltop (Georgetown) and played his first game in the Kenner League I said to myself, "man this kid is the most athletic player the Hoyas have, and has had in some time." What a sight to see him come off of the bench with lots of energy shooting and making "hail mary" three balls. The ball just hangs high in the air and then drops in and SWISH! This young man has all the potential in the world in his craft. As I stated before, AB is not wearing the #23 just for show he's trying to represent his team and the greatest basketball player ever Michael Jordan. Three 3's were made between he and D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera.
Sophomore Jabril Trawick started the game in place of sophomore Greg Whittington (school issues) had a nice outing against the Friars. He looked very confident and played 31 minutes. Trawick had 3 stls., 4 rebs., & 5 points and was 3-4 from the free throw line. His defense energy and stoppage of his opponents paid many dividends for the Hoyas on the defensive end. Kudos!
