It’s Time to End the Curse of the Phonebooth

Since March 7, 2015, there has been a curse on the Georgetown Hoyas and their home court, Capital One Arena. The game at the arena that was formerly known as the Verizon Center, and the MCI Center before that, saw a triumphant return of Georgetown legend Tyler Adams. Adams—now an assistant coach at Jackson State—scored the opening bucket of the game against Seton Hall that day. The Hoyas, led by John Thompson III, called timeout for the substitution but did not reciprocate by allowing a bucket. Instead, Georgetown, took the 2-point lead all the way to a 73-67 win.
