We break down the Georgetown game – and we give our fearless prediction below the flip.
Georgetown is a football school, of course. But you may have heard that they also play basketball at Georgetown, and this Friday is a huge deal on campus: Hoya Madness.
“The Georgetown University men’s and women’s basketball programs will hold their annual Hoya Madness celebration, the official on-campus kickoff party of the 2016-17 basketball season, on Friday, October 14 at 8 p.m. in McDonough Arena,” the release states. “This is a free event open to all Georgetown students.

For the first time since a few weeks, hope and optimism, for the rest of this year up to the 150th meeting of Lehigh and Lafayette – and beyond – made an appearance.
