Fox Sports 1 held a Big East tip-off special on Friday, with activities and performances at each of the conference’s 10 schools. Live video feeds were featured in a two-hour program. Among the highlights from Georgetown:

Hoyas junior guard Jabril Trawick dunked while wearing the Jack the Bulldog head, with an assist from junior center Joshua Smith.


Rapper B.o.B. lent his talents to Georgetown for the evening, taking the court with the team before jumping into the crowd shirtless.


Coach John Thompson III did a satellite interview with Fox Sports 1 with the chaos going on in the background. I think it’s safe to say that it’s the first time a Hoyas coach has had backup dancers for his interview.

By the end, the chat went off the rails.

“Does anybody have any idea what he’s saying to me?” JTIII asked when he couldn’t hear the last question from the studio.

Probably should have timed the interview a little better.


Below are some more video highlights, including interim women’s head coach Jim Lewis dancing, JTIII singing, members of the men’s team performing to ‘N Sync, Otto Porter Jr., and more B.o.B.
