Temple basketball upsets Georgetown

It was the second time I attended a Temple University men’s basketball since I graduated, and the result was much of the same: an upset win of a Top Ten ranked national powerhouse.

In December 2008, I saw Temple beat up on Tennessee, and tonight, with a couple friends, I had great, $35 near-floor seats to an exciting escape win over a tough Georgetown program.

Televised on ESPN2 and featuring Jay Bilas offering commentary, the game turned out to be beloved Coach Fran Dunphy’s 400th win. Afterward, the student section rushed the floor, as you can see in the video below, including friend Sean Blanda. Photo of Dunph’s 400th career win ball.

College basketball is easily my favorite live event.
