The 2014-15 Georgetown Hoyas basketball season got underway at McDonough Arena with the annual Hoya Madness event. There wasn't a stream of the event, but thanks to some folks in attendance like friend of the blog Michael Bohlin (@mbohlin247) of Hoyas247.com (@hoyas247), @georgetownhoops, @georgetownhoyas, and others we have some pretty great highlights.
GUHoyas.com has a full write-up of the event and a great photo gallery.
Thanks to Michael, we have full highlights of the player intros.
James Lacey has full video of the dunk contest.
Isaac Copeland won the dunk contest with this (pretty nasty) dunk. I think we might like these freshman.
Aaron Bowen was the runner-up (he missed all his attempts in the final), but he, uh, can still dunk.
Perfect 10. Aaron Bowen during tonight's #HoyaMadness dunk contest.
The crowd appeared to enjoy the event.
These fans love their #Hoyas

Trey Songz performed.
Lots of missed dunks just now but it seems like Trey Songz is going to get the crowd going. pic.twitter.com/J9RjsoZFCK— Hoyas247 (@Hoyas247) October 18, 2014
And then met Big Coach Thompson.

And then took a photo with the whole team.
I mean, when you have an opportunity to take a group photo with Trey Songz you should do it. pic.twitter.com/2GIv6UkG12 #Hoyas— Hoyas247 (@Hoyas247) October 18, 2014
All in all, it seems like this year's Hoya Madness was pretty great for those in attendance (especially and importantly the number of recruits that were in the house). Let's get this season started.
.@WeAreGeorgetown Personally, I thought it was better than last year's. Crowd was really into it all night.— Hoyas247 (@Hoyas247) October 18, 2014
