View From The Student Section: “Tri-ple Dig-its! Recap

Georgetown is off to a 2-0 start for the first time since the 2014-15 season thanks to another 20-point game from Jessie Govan, 19 points from Jahvon Blair, and double-digit scoring outputs from three others. The Hoyas were dominant throughout. They more than doubled the rebounding total of Mount St. Mary’s and held them to just 38.5% shooting from the field. The Mountaineers, who rely heavily on the three-ball on offense and creating mayhem on defense, struggled to impose their will on the game and never held a lead.Space Jam was the theme of the night.

The Hoyas dominated in the paint 48-28, outscored the Mountaineers 35-10 in bench points, held a 33-7 advantaged in fast break points, and skunked Mt. Saint Mary’s 18-0 in second chance points.

Triple Threats: Hoyas top Mountaineers, 102-68

Georgetown shoots 50% from 3, Govan gets second consecutive double-double Your Georgetown Hoyas remain undefeated in the 2nd Patrick Ewing Era. A dominant first half morphed into a blowout after the break, with the home team ultimately prevailing by an eye-popping 34 point margin on Monstars Night at Capital One Arena. Mount St. Mary's endured a small exodus of transfers in the off-season, but Jamion Christian's squad was expected to be one of the tougher opponents on Georgetown's (much-maligned) non-conference slate. To put it in perspective, there is a 44 spot jump in KenPom ranking...

View from the Student Section: Ewing and the Hoyas are Undefeated

Patrick Ewing’s Hoyas kicked off the 2017-18 campaign by defeating Jacksonville by a score of 73-57. Key performances came from Marcus Derrickson and Jessie Govan, who combined for 40 points, 23 rebounds, and 5 steals, with Govan adding 4 blocks as well. Jonathan Mulmore dished out 7 assists and played strong defense, while Jagan Mosely came off the bench to contribute 9 points and drew 3 charges by my count. The Hoyas weren’t necessarily polished in their first game of the season, especially when considering their 18 turnovers, but they gave fans a lot of reasons to be optimistic...

View From Campus: A New Era Begins

Optimism – I’ve had it every year I’ve been on the Hilltop. My freshman year coincided with the arrival of L.J. Peak, Isaac Copeland, Paul White, Tre Campbell, and Trey Mourning, a recruiting class considered one of the best in the nation. While a Second Round exit should never be the goal, it felt like a foundation was laid and deeper tournament runs were on the horizon. The next year, the cause for excitement was the potential for growth. A disappointing year saw the Hoyas miss out on postseason play, but even after a tough 2015-16 campaign, I still had optimism last year. The...

Ten Questions for Patrick Ewing and the Hoyas Season Preview – The 2017-18 Georgetown Hoyas Nothing is the same, and yet everything seems familiar. I’ll be honest. The events of the last seven months still leave a bad taste in my mouth. I liked and respected JTIII; whether or not he deserved to lose his job, the whole damn thing went down like a never-ending terrible Latin soap opera. I feel like we all need to take a collective shower to wash off the stank of all that drama once and for all. But alas. In what has felt like the most interminable offseason in the history...

Weekend Recap: Hoyas - VCU Secret Scrimmage, More Ewing!

Your Fighting Hoyas of Georgetown faced VCU on Saturday in a top secret scrimmage, and while we don’t have many details as to what went down, there are a few nuggets from VCU’s Ram Nation message board: It was a one possession game late. Georgetown owned the glass but our Rams did a good job with pressure D. They were able to make them uncomfortable and cause turnovers. Khris Lane, Issac Vann, and Johnny Williams played well. The team shot it badly in the second half. But all in all it sounds like definite step in the right direction. Don't have any specifics but was told we looked...
