Senior Day 2015 was something special. Watching a truly amazing group of seniors take the court at Verizon Center for the last time was bittersweet, and the emotions displayed by the players and their families were shared by many in the crowd who struggled to fight back a tear. And of course the opportunity to share in Tyler Adams’ incredible moment back on the court was something Hoya fans will never forget. ABC World News did a wonderful story on Tyler, which can be viewed here.
The day was capped by a tremendous win over Seton Hall, which allowed the Hoyas to capture second place in the BIG EAST, and a two seed in this week’s BIG EAST Tournament!
