Georgetown arrived in South Korea on Wednesday afternoon.
Nov. 6, 2013
South Korea - The Georgetown University men's basketball team arrived in Seoul, South Korea on Tuesday night. Or was it Wednesday morning? Or Wednesday afternoon? Actually, it was Wednesday evening. And soon after arriving, the Hoyas went through a short workout at a facility on the base of Camp Humphreys in advance of the 2013-14 season opener against Oregon on Friday, Nov. 8 in the Armed Forces Classic.
The team arrived at Dulles International Airport in Virginia on Tuesday morning and boarded its Korean Air flight around noon. The 14-hour flight - which went through Canada and over the Bering Sea and Russia - arrived at Incheon International Airport just after 4 p.m. local time on Wednesday afternoon. (So, yes, there was the loss of a half-day in there somewhere)
After arriving at the airport and collecting baggage, the Hoyas were greeted by Sergeant First Class Kevin Hubbard, a native of Columbus, Georgia who is stationed at Camp Humphreys and is the team's escort for the week.
The team took a bus from Seoul to Camp Humphreys, a little more than a one-hour drive. As Sgt. Cameron noted to the coaches, players and staff accompanying the team, during the cold months, it gets dark early and that was evident on the bus ride as it was completely dark by 5 p.m.
The team arrived at the base hotel around 6:30 p.m. and was greeted by Colonel Darin Conkright, the base commander at Camp Humphreys. Conkright explained that Camp Humphreys has been in place since the Korean War, operating for 63 years.
"We welcome you to Camp Humphreys, where you are about as far away from home, both physically and culturally, as you could be," he said. "But for our staff on this base, we thank you for bringing this slice of American pie to our troops.
"When we are here in the cold winter months and they are in muddy foxholes with their rifle, this is something that will warm them up. We appreciate your coming here for this game and, more important, we appreciate your support as citizens of our country."
On Thursday, the team will practice in the morning, followed by a tour of the Super Hangar and a kid's clinic in the afternoon.
