Hoya Hoop Club Open Practice
On October 24, Coach Thompson and the Hoya Hoop Club hosted the annual open practice for Hoya Hoop Club members. The 500 fans in attendance at O’Donovan Hall enjoyed the opportunity to meet the team and Coach Thompson, to get their autographs and to listen to Coach Thompson answer questions about the team and the upcoming season. The fans then all headed to McDonough (past the Thompson Center, which is shooting up before our eyes) to watch the Hoyas practice. To view a photo gallery of the event, please click here.
Your Opportunity To Support The Hoyas!
Hoya fans have 31 opportunities to see the Hoyas play in the regular season this year, including 17 at home at Verizon Center. Our most important request is that everyone gets out to as many games as possible to support the team at home and on the road. You will be glad you did.
