Hoyas Live

Hoyas launch two threes on their first possession and keep launching, with Jon Wallace making two from long distance and another with his foot on the NBA line.

I'm gonna call the crowd 8 percent Georgetown, 9 percent Villanova and 83 percent popcorn and beer.

The Villanova cheerleaders have little Wildcat prints on their cheeks, which earns demerits. Word is the Seton Hall cheerleaders yesterday were vicious, screaming at refs and players from both teams. We could use more of that today.

My seat has been moved and I'm now seated next to a Georgetown beat writer who is loudly expressing displeasure at certain calls made by the refs. I'll give you one guess what that reporter's name is.

And at 13:41, Chris Wright checks in for the first time in weeks and the beat writer claps. It takes him five seconds to record his first assist.

Continued below.

Villanova fans have at least five signs about the "I believe he got fouled."

At the second media timeout it's 20-10 Georgetown. Villaonva has already sent two passes to the bank of photographers on the baseline.

'Nova assistant coach Doug West kinda looks like Darryl Strawberry from 50 paces.

With 7 minutes left in the first half the score is Villanova 17, Jon Wallace 16, everyone else 11.

And with 6 minutes left, Scottie Reynolds gets badly bloodied when he and Vernon Macklin crash to the ground after a Reynolds shot. And now the clean-up commences. Towels and sprays. It's a less less amusing than a vomit clean-up. The Georgetown fans respond with a "Hoya Saxa" chant.

A few minutes later Reynolds re-enters, and Patrick Ewing Jr. gets a technical by flipping the ball over his head after a foul call. It's hard to imagine a more ridiculous technical call. That ref probably believes Chad Johnson should get 60 days for that Hall of Fame jacket celebration.
