Qasual Questions: Throwdown Thursday

Here are some QQs to help get you through your Thursday until we flip the switch to Robert Morris coverage.  Thanks again to jaygo for helping out. What did you have for breakfast this morning? Is there any reason to be concerned with what we've seen so far from D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera? Do you prefer to chat with someone via text or via a phone call? I had some pulled pork sliders at the Phone Booth during the game. What is your go to meal if you have to get dinner at Verizon or any other arena? True or False: If Josh Smith plays the rest of the way like he did against TAMUCC then...

Bully Ball: Georgetown Overcomes Slow Star, Overpowers Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, 78-62

Joshua Smith bowls his way to double-double, Mikael Hopkins and Aaron Bowen help Hoyas overwhelm upstart Islanders Georgetown overcame a sloppy, listless first half Tuesday night to run over and away from Texas A&M-Corpus Christi in the second half Tuesday, easing its way to a 78-62 victory. Joshua Smith had his most complete game as a Hoya, putting up 20 points, hauling in 12 rebounds, and generally playing with more energy and activity than in any other game since arriving on the Hilltop. Things were ugly, early for the Hoyas, who couldn't contain the opposing attack. The Islanders were...

Qasual Questions: Undefeated Juggernaut

The offseason sensation that broke the internet before Kim Kardashian's butt tried to do the same is back as Qasual Questions returns!  Special thanks to jaygo for submitting: What is the first word that comes to mind when describing LJ Peak's debut? What was the best thing you ate all weekend? Any nerves when we went down 16-15 with 10:30 to go in the first half? Jabril's technical foul? Refreshing or Uh Oh? Which (non-Peak) frosh impressed you the most? Thoughts on the return of Josh Smith?

My First Hoyas Game

Freshman student offers recap of 1st ever Hoyas game. Yesterday, the day I had looked forward to ever since I received my acceptance letter to Georgetown finally arrived: the day of the Hoyas' men's basketball season opener. I rolled out of bed around 10 A.M., washed the sleep out of my eyes, ate my Chipotle leftovers from the previous night, and threw on my "We Are Georgetown" t-shirt, ready to make the first of many trips to the Verizon Center. After a brief debate about which form of transportation would be most effective, my friends and I eventually decided that splitting a cab would...

Peak Perfection: Georgetown Smokes St. Francis, 83-62

Hoyas Run Away from Terriers as Freshman LJ Peak Scores 23 Points, Makes All 9 Shots Freshman LJ Peak had a thrilling debut in a Georgetown uniform Saturday, scoring 23 points on a perfect 9-of-9 from the field in the Hoyas' convincing if uneven 83-62 season-opening victory over visiting St. Francis.  Peak's eruption headlined an otherwise balanced Georgetown effort that included solid contributions from returning veterans and extended views of the much-hyped freshmen.  The Hoyas got out and ran, compensating for an iffy half-court offense with plenty of transition buckets.  On defense,...

Games That Matter - Season Preview

Rankings:ESPN / USA Today: N/AAP: N/ARPI: N/ASeason Preview - The 2014-15 Georgetown Hoyas Last season was a blur - a sad and terrible, frustrating and miserable few months of basketball.  We were so bad that we couldn't play our all-too-familiar role of the overachieving regular season team that crashes out early in the Tournament.  In fact, we didn't even make the Tournament (the one that counts, anyway).  Injuries, suspensions, hand-check rules, poor academics, adjusting to life without Otto, broken jaws, silly fouls, and a whole host of other little annoyances contributed to one of...

Game Preview: St. Francis (NY) Terriers at Georgetown Hoyas

Well it's finally go time. They won't be slipping and sliding on the deck of a ship nor will they be playing in the Eastern Hemisphere.  Instead your Georgetown Hoyas will be opening up the 2014-15 season at home for the first time since 2011 against the St. Francis (NY) Terriers. So who are the Terriers? While not exactly a household name, St. Francis is actually pretty good and if this game were being held in mid March at a neutral venue, most Hoya fans would be nervous.  The Terriers are the preseason favorite to win the Northeast Conference, feature an all conference performer in...

Dozier had narrowed his list to the Gamecocks, Georgetown, Louisville, UNC, and Michigan. P.J. Dozier, a 4-star PG out of Columbia, SC, has announced that he will attend South Carolina next year.

He had reportedly narrowed his final list of schools to South Carolina, Louisville, and Georgetown. With Dozier headed to South Carolina, the Hoyas still have three open scholarships for next season. Big men Marcus Derrickson and Jesse Govan are the foundation of a solid class for...
