Well, it’s not quite the Hoya Madness or the traditional Open Practice for which the fans have been clamoring, but Georgetown will be offering a Virtual Men’s Basketball Season Preview on November 4th at 6:30PM. Show the good folks at McDonough and the Thompson Center how eager the Hoya Faithful has grown for information and register now!
Next-next-Thursday evening appears to have an action-packed agenda with Rick “Doc” Walker, Rich Chvotkin, and Patrick Ewing Jr., as well as appearances from Head Coach Patrick Ewing, Athletic Director Lee Reed, and Hoya Hoop Club President Mark Guerrera.
The event also promises interviews from fan-favorite BIG EAST Commentator John Fanta!

Obviously this event is far better than zero preseason events. Other schools’ events have made some Georgetown fans envious—even a UConn event where the basket fixture was broken.
Last Friday, the Hoyas updated their roster online last Friday and there was one surprise. Now, it’s up to Ewing, and his staff to get the 12 scholarship players ready. Hopefully, fans will only have pleasant surprises from here on out.
The registration page for the preview event indicates that:
Registrants will receive a calendar invitation followed by an email containing the link to join the event on the morning of November 4 from athleticsengagement [at] georgetown.edu. If you do not see it come through, please check your spam and promotions folders.
The registration page also suggests a donation.
Support your Hoyas and show Georgetown that we’re starving for outreach and information!
