Thank you to the 150 Lafayette Bears who came to McDonough Arena to cheer on the Georgetown University Women’s Basketball Team on Saturday!
HSA VP 2, Nok Nora Duany Bassey, and Katherine Holloway greeted the children with pom poms as they entered. Our group sat near mid-court, the perfect spot to view the game.
GU Athletics called Nok to the court during a timeout for a shooting contest against a current GU student. Nok played basketball for Georgetown during her undergraduate years. Katherine encouraged the Lafayette crowd to get on their feet and make some noise. Our Lafayette Bears delivered and brought the house down with cheering! Nok progressed through the layup and free throw spots to sink her three-pointer on the first try! She won!
The Hoyas put on an exciting near comeback towards the end. After the game, the Georgetown Women’s Team came to center court for a photo with our group. Some of the children talked and took photos with the players too. Children received autographed posters of the team.
Thank you for sharing your Lafayette spirit with our local Hoyas, and thank you for supporting women’s athletics!
