Hoyas Shocked by Radford University in Season Opener in 2OT

The Headline: The Hoya Men’s Basketball team and its fans were not expecting its first loss to be to a seasoned team from a “lesser” conference, but that was its fate today. While there were some positive aspects to the game, including the play of senior center Bradley Hayes and freshman center Jessie Govan, and some timely hot shooting by senior guard D’Vauntes Smith-Rivera in the second half after going scoreless in the first half, overall the team didn’t look prepared for the Highlanders. The next game, against Big Ten’s highly touted¬†University of Maryland in College Park on Tuesday night, now looms large.

After a great first half at the free throw line (19 for 20), things went south.

One Question?¬† I have heard that Trey Mourning had improved a great deal since last season–why didn’t he get time today?

Some Hoya Fans today may be asking, “What happened to St. Leo’s?” Response: If you want a cupcake, head down to M Street at Georgetown Cupcakes.
