BACK IN BUSINESS! How you like me now? Pretty good. Going on. FEELING STRONG.

View from the Student Section - A Youthful Perspective from Campus

Well that was a nice refreshing win this weekend wasn't it? I think Greg should get suspended more often! But seriously though, the kid has an attitude problem. We have enough issues playing quality basketball, but we don't need to also have to deal with a guy who, although clearly frustrated with his own personal quality of play, decides to throw temper tantrums on the court. I expect the red carpet to be rolled out for big Moses for this game, as he has almost certainly established himself as the current preferable option at the 5-spot. I don't care that he is raw on the offensive end. The guy can play defense, he can rebound, he doesn't kill us on offense, and damnit he gives it his very all for every second he's on the floor. I can respect a guy like that. I'm "probably" gonna be there. And hell, if I can't find any fun friends to hang out with, maybe I'll just head into 118 and chill with the Stonewalls. Lord knows you guys are more fun than pretty much all of the 15 students who are going to show up to this game. And maybe someone has a spare CasuAle sitting around that I might try? Come early, be loud, wear gray. Hoya Saxa.

View from the Cheap Seats - A Nervous Perspective from JahidiLikesPie:

I can't say that my nervousness level will be anything below OH SHIT for the foreseeable future. Provy seems to play The Hoyas tough every year. Wait, I think we worked them in Prov last year, but I was too relaxed to be concerned with the score.

I am really concerned about being able to watch tonight's game. I want to make it home and I would love to hit a barcar, but I just don't see it in the cards. These 7 PM games are getting tougher to make. Come to think of it, so are these perspectives that I write. I can't get involved on the blog from my phone because I have an OLD MAN phone (Blackberry). I feel like such an outsider.

Nervous Level: OH SHIT

View from the Sports Book
- An Unbiased Perspective from Vegas:

The Line: Georgetown -7.

This line opened at -7, has bounced to as much as 7.5 and seems to have settled somewhere in between. Providence is 1-5 in its last 6 including losses against Boston College, Brown and DePaul. Let me say that again, BOSTON COLLEGE, BROWN AND DEPAUL.

The pick is Georgetown -7. Final score Hoyas 67 - Friars 58.

Casual Hoya is 8-3 ATS this season.
Overall 64-37-1.
