View from the Student Section - A Perspective from Campus:
Will any students be at Lafayette game this Saturday? I'm going to assume the Verizon Center will be about as empty as my Philosophy class was on Wednesday and for the same reason- when Thanksgiving approaches, people run away from Georgetown the first chance they get. It's not because they don't enjoy Georgetown, but the idea of a holiday is so appealing that almost every student books the first ticket they see home and certainly won't be back by Saturday. By Wednesday afternoon, the campus was completely deserted; my government teacher kept referring to the remaining fourth of my class as "we happy few." In any case, the team should not need much fan support against Lafayette and will hopefully take advantage of the easy schedule leading up to the Butler game on the 8th.
View from the Court Side Seats - A Perspective from OldHoya:
Another tough game for OldHoya to fire up for, particularly on the heels of a trip to Italy to get some well earned relaxation.
To maintain a well rounded balance, it's time to impart some knowledge about fine dining: Olive all'Ascolana. For those who haven't tried them, these are olives stuffed with veal, battered and lightly fried. You won't find them on any menu in these parts but if you can twist an arm (or grease a palm), you're in for one of the best appetizers man has yet devised.
View from the Sportsbook (via DonBest) - A Perspective from Vegas:
Once again Vegas has turned a blind eye to the Hoyas, likely knowing that no matter what spread it sets all the money will be on the Leopards. Assuming no line on the Mount St. Mary's game, we're probably not going to be able to wager against Chris Wright until the American game at the earliest.
On the season:
The Hoyas are currently 1-1 ATS (that's 'Against The Spread' for those just tuning in).
Georgetown is 1-0 ATS on the road and 0-1 ATS at Verizon.
Casual Hoya is 2-0 ATS, 1-1 in Over/Unders.
