(Perspectives After The Jump)

View from the Student Section - A Perspective from Campus:

Campus is just starting to get ready for the basketball season again. Students are looking forward to the season and are eager to see what John Thompson III’s new recruiting class looks like. There are definitely concerns about the youth of the team, but with stars like Jason Clark and Hollis Thompson returning, students are optimistic about our chances in the ever-changing Big East. The Kansas game at the Maui Invitational should tell us a lot about the team, it’s a shame we couldn’t have had them at home in the Verizon Center.

Outside of basketball, campus is abuzz with the new fundraising campaign launched by Georgetown. Banners line the front of Healy and Copley. In the past few weeks, Georgetown has featured speakers like Ann Coulter and both Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.  All in the name of basketball (and academics...)!

View from the Court Side Seats - A Perspective from OldHoya:

Once again, we arrive at that wonderful time of year with the leaves changing and attentions turning to the hardwood. OldHoya won't pass up a chance to applaud the football for their exceptional season thus far and playing for a Patriot League Championship is one hell of an accomplishment.

But today marks the first game of the season and the final go round for seniors Henry Sims and Jason Clark. It's no secret to the Casual Hoya readers but we're also welcoming a group of talented freshmen into the mix. After charting the course through some rough international waters in the offseason, it'll be nice to open the season with a win. And though we can never look past an opponent, it's difficult to see Savannah State putting up much of a fight. OldHoya's been to plenty of these early games and if there's one thing he knows, it's that all fans should be in their seats early because there's likely to be plenty of time for pretzels and beers in the second half.

Welcome back and go Hoyas.

View from the Enemy- A Perspective from our Sleeping With The Enemy Interview:

SSU's best scorers and rebounders are Rashad Hassan and Arnold Louis. Both are redshirt juniors.

LOW

Wow- great to have college basketball back my life. Good thing we had a pretty uneventful offseason! As far as Saturday's game is concerned, I am at a pleasantly low level of nervousness. I am mostly excited for bottoms up beers and the ability to dump them in lordnick's lap. I am also excited because tomorrow's game has finally given me cause to enjoy a delicious coors light (or six) before noon. I will inevitably be disappointed by the fact that I can't find my beloved beer in tall boy cans.

Ladies and Gents, let's enjoy the joy that Hoya Hoops is back and not think about the world that is imploding around us. Until we lose, of course.

View from the Sportsbook (via DonBest) - A Perspective from Vegas:

The Line: OFF

No line?  Where's the fun in that?  I mean, couldn't Vegas at least set a line to get some action on this game? To make things interesting, I'm going to go ahead and set my own line, and I'll put this one at Georgetown -18.5.  The Hoyas should probably win this thing by 20+, but I'll give the plucky Tigers some early season cred, and the Hoyas covering machine is going to take some time to come to fruition.  I enjoy gambling.

The pick is Savannah State +18.5. Final score Georgetown 72 - Savannah State 54.

Casual Hoya was 18-14 ATS last season.
