Rich Chvotkin calls Georgetown's win at Villanova

By Dan Steinberg

(By Matt Slocum - AP)

Just about every time Rich Chvotkin gets really excited, I try to make some note of it. Like, he got excited after a win over Connecticut last January, blasting out 10 "Hoyas Win!" as part of his excitement. Then there was the time he believed Jonathan Wallace got fouled, although that video has been removed. Suffice it to say, he really, really, really believed that Jonathan Wallace had gotten fouled.

Saturday at Villanova was another classic. Via ESPN 980, Georgetown Athletics and Evan Chvotkin, here is Rich's game-winning call. I count 15 "Hoyas Win!" in the main body of the text, with another one as a sort of coda. Jonathan Tannenwald says that counts as 16 overall, one short of Chvotkin's all-time record, which I can't necessarily verify. Still, it's the good stuff. All that would make it better is some accompanying video of Villanova fans throwing cups in his direction.

Is it just me or does Rich C. remind you of a smooth-talking Bob Ryan, without the stammering and stuttering (no offense to Mr. Ryan)?

"And he's FOULED! Oh my!"
