WASHINGTON - Georgetown University has been nominated as one of the top college basketball students sections in the country and is now asking for its fans' support in helping it win the prestigious title. Hoyas fans can have a say in determining the most deserving student section by voting for the Naismith Student Section of the Year Award daily via social media platforms.

There are three ways fans can vote:

1. Via a direct link: www.mystudentsectionrocks.com or http://bit.ly/1fzbsNx 2. Via College Colors on Facebook: www.facebook.com/collegecolors 3. Via Twitter: Using our designated hashtag, #RockHoyasColors and #beststudentsection within a Tweet

The Naismith Student Section of the Year Award, which is presented through a partnership between the Collegiate Licensing Company (CLC), the licensing affiliate of IMG College, and the Atlanta Tipoff Club, administrators of the Naismith Awards, is dedicated to celebrating student fans that support their college basketball team with passion and devotion.

"College basketball student sections embody the energy, passion and enthusiasm that create a uniquely coveted home court advantage, and we want to celebrate that," said Catherine Gammon, Senior Vice President of Brand Development for CLC. "We are encouraging all fans to make sure the students of their favorite school are recognized for the spirit they display by casting votes daily."

"We're hopeful that Georgetown fans, alumni, family and friends will continue to show their support by voting for Hoya Blue as the best college basketball student section in the country," Georgetown Senior Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs Dan O'Neil said. "The Hoyas have had the opportunity to play in front of great crowds at Verizon Center and our students have made our home court one of the toughest in the country and we're hoping everyone will take the time to vote for the Hoyas on Facebook and Twitter."

The Naismith Student Section of the Year Award will be determined through two rounds of public voting, combined with a scoring of the finalists by the Naismith Awards Board of Selectors. The Board of Selectors will review criteria such as rank during the two rounds of public voting, video submission showcasing the spirit of the student section, any organized efforts to promote voting for the award, as well as the group's support of any philanthropic organization during the season. Complete details on the selection process can be found at facebook.com/CollegeColors.

Besides bragging rights, the winning student section earns a $10,000 donation to their school's general scholarship fund and will be honored during a home basketball game. In addition, the school with the highest number of public votes in each represented conference will earn a $250 donation to their school.

The 2014 campaign marks the third year of the Naismith Student Section of the Year Award. The University of Kansas won the inaugural award in 2012, while Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) took home top honors in 2013.
