View from the Student Section - A Perspective from Campus:
I am currently sitting in my discussing section it White Gravenor, pretending to take notes on a discussion on slave emancipation in the 1800, and secretly writing about Georgetown Basketball. I would love to say that I went out raging at Thirds last night, but not being in the business school, my weekend begins tonight, not last night (and not Wednesday night either, B-Frat).
The thing that really upset me today was that GUGS was not grilling scrumptious hamburgers for me to consume – half-pound monsters of deliciousness. I am not sure if they think it is too cold, but c’mon, its 52 degree Fahrenheit. While I may be upset about that, I hope our team doesn’t get upset on the court (I had to make an atrocious pun here somewhere). For anyone who is extremely superstitious, William Preston Few went to Wofford. And if you don’t know who Few was, he was the first president of Duke University. I think this means that we can’t lose… Hoya Saxa!
View from the Court Side Seats - A Perspective from OldHoya:
It's not exactly Where's Waldo but astute observers will have already noticed that OldHoya made the trek to Charleston to cheer on Georgetown. A dominant win yesterday, the Hoyas now turn their attention to Wofford.
There's no history to speak of with Georgetown but Wofford looked good upsetting USC Upstate (what is it with South Carolina and vague directional schools?) and hung close with both Minnesota and Clemson. After never posting a winning record in D1, Wofford turned the corner last year with its first trip to the tournament.
When there's little to say about a team, OldHoya is happy to provide eating recommendations should you find yourself in the opponent's hometown. No one will confuse Spartanburg with a culinary mecca but the burgers at The Beacon will make your day.

The Line: Georgetown -7
I saw numerous red flags in yesterday's blowout win that lead me to believe that should the Hoyas start missing from behind the line, there is going to be a game against a lesser opponent that will end up being closer than it should be. Wofford isn't a slouch, having made the NCAA Tournament last year (and lasted as long as Georgetown!). I can see this game being a 10 point cushion late but Wofford making a few runs that will make it an uncomfortable viewing experience for those with a vested interest in the Blue and Gray.
The pick is Georgetown -7. Final score: Georgetown 66 - Wofford 55.
Casual Hoya is 3-0 ATS. Last season: 22-8 ATS.
