Welcome from The Verizon Center, where the Hoyas are getting ready to take on the Pitt Panthers tonight.  It's a 7 p.m. tipoff and I am sitting in my normal seat, two from the visiting bench and next to the stat crew with about 41 minutes left before the start of the game.
This is only our second night game at home of the season, but it's the first home night game and it's the first BIG EAST game with students back on campus.  There's a strong turnout here already and I'm sure we'll be having a near sell-out crowd.

It's been a busy afternoon.  I had enough time to set up the press area and the press room before the team got here and I had to meet with Coach Thompson for a few interviews.  If you have twitter, you can see a few of the pictures through my account (@MexCarey).

Coach normally meets with Rich Chvotkin for his pregame interview about 90 minutes before tip.  If the tv crew doing the game - in this case, Dave Pasch, Bob Knight and Holly Rowe - hasn't spoken to him, they'll get a chance to speak to him then as well.

After those were done, Coach also took a couple of minutes and spoke to Dave Feldman from Fox 5 and Lindsay Czarniak from NBC 4.  You can always tell a big game when the tv anchors come out.

Okay, it's 36 minutes to tip. I need to get dinner before things get busier.
