(Perspectives After The Jump)

View from the Student Section - A Perspective from Campus:

I watched the game Saturday sitting at a table in Epicurean trying to see the TV over a bunch of Med School students who decided to stand around and have a conversation right in front of the screen. Other than being down almost the entire game and the fact that a pitcher of Blue Moon was $20, I can’t complain too much because we won. However, I am a little scared that living and dying by the three may not help our consistency improve from last year.

I hope that we wipe the floor of the Verizon Center with the Tulane players tonight. While students are not really thrilled with the tests that teachers want to bunch right before Thanksgiving break, they seem excited for the seasonal religion that is college basketball to resume and for a casual domination. Speaking of casual, a picture of a friend of mine wearing a Casual Headband this weekend just popped up on my newsfeed along with some pictures that I would rather forget. I look forward to Swagman regaining his swag this game. Hoya Saxa!

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

Tonight Old Hoya begins his 45 season of Hoya Basketball - having been a Georgetown freshman in 1965 - and his 29 as a season ticket holder -having purchased tickets in 1982 while still living in Ohio.

Old Hoya has very little to say about Tulane , but the first home game always holds the promise of a look at the team's strengths and newcomers. Tonight our focus will be on guard play, but we will all have a watchful eye on the inside game and rebounding strength. The beginning of the season also marks the return of many opportunities for Hoya friendship, postgame camaraderie, and spirited support of Georgetown which are as important to Old Hoya as the wins. HOYA SAXA - LET'S GET BEHIND THIS YEAR'S TEAM

And on a New Orleans note, do yourself 2 favors the next time you're in the Crescent City: have a Hurricane at the Pat O'Brien's courtyard and a muffaletta from the Central Grocery.

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

Rebounding is going to be an issue...again. Tulane has a severe lack of frontcourt depth and will likely be relying on rail-thin freshman Kevin Thomas (6-foot-9) and a series of 6-foot-6 and 6-foot-7 forwards.

Georgetown 85, Tulane 60 - Bring on Centenary!

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

The Line: Georgetown -22.5.

I don't expect this game to be remotely close, but I'm not going to lay 22.5 points on the Hoyas until they show me otherwise. Tulane dropped 91 points on Maryland-Eastern Shore which shows that they can score some baskets against a terrible opponent. Since I fully suspect that with about 5 minutes left the guards we have on the court will be more of the Starks, Bowen, and Dougherty varietal than the Freeman, Wright, and Clark vintage, it wouldn't surprise me if a 25 point bulge gets whittled down to the high teens as the final buzzer approaches.

The pick is Tulane +22.5. Final score Georgetown 82 - Tulane 64.

Casual Hoya is 1-0 ATS. Last season: 22-8 ATS. : Where Your Money Stays And Plays.
