Recap of the February 23 Syracuse Game Watches

What a win for the Hoyas on Saturday, as they defeated evil Syracuse 57-46 in the two teams' final Big East clash at the Carrier Dome.  Dare we say it... The Carrier Dome is officially closed!

Here are some pictures and video from the three game watches held on Saturday around the Bay.

First, a strong Hoya contingent in Palo Alto at Old Pro.

Then, a nice showing at Ben and Nick's in Oakland.

Finally, a standing room-only crowd at Bus Stop, plus a video of the post-win fight song!

Thank you to everybody who came out, hope you had a great time!  And extra thank yous to Adam Nisbet and Carter Lavin, our regional chairs, for organizing the Palo Alto and Oakland Game Watches!

Hopefully more fun to come during the rest of the regular season and into March... LET'S GO HOYAS.
