The Morning After: Post-Game Articles, Quotes and Videos

Sweet lax high-fives to all the students that braved the blizzard and made it to the Irish Channel Pub, and the game I guess.  As you can see from the last response in the below video, Coach Thompson was incredibly appreciative of the effort.

Georgetown vs. Villanova Quotes - GEORGETOWN OFFICIAL ATHLETIC SITE
Coach Thompson On the crowd... "It was unbelievable. It was, if you've been listening to all the reports, the worst storm since the Knickerbocker storm in the 1920's. For everyone to come out, it's truly appreciated. We feed off our crowd and to see the effort they made to get down here we want to thank them. We had thought can we reschedule this game because we were worried about our fans and everyone's safety, but there was no date where it would have worked. ..I hope they can get home safely, but it's truly appreciated."

Fan Interviews


Hoyas stand out in busy day of hoops - Mike DeCourcy - College Basketball - Sporting News
Hoyas fans are dedicated. Was it more impressive to see Georgetown hang a hundy on Villanova—or to see so many fans traverse a blizzard? OK, probably the team. Underrated Jason Clark was spectacular at both ends

Hoya Prospectus: Recap: Georgetown 103, Villanova 90
While the story of the game for most fans will be the lights out shooting by Jason Clark and Austin Freeman in the Lift-Off half [a combined 6/7 3FG], in fact it was the defense forcing 14 turnovers in 38 possessions that was the real difference-maker.  All those turnovers effectively shut down the Big East's best offense for 20 minutes, and allowed Georgetown to build a 19-point lead that they were able to ride to victory.

Afternoon recap: UNLV played the most complete game of anyone | College Hoops Journal
No. 7 Georgetown 103, No. 2 Villanova 90. ‘Nova got its doors blown off. Do we feel a loss at West Virginia coming Monday and unnecessary how-good-is-Villanova? stories thereafter? Please spare me. As for Georgetown, Austin Freeman and Jason Clark  went off. Clark had six 3’s and 24 points; Freeman had 25 points. Georgetown is 4-0 on Saturdays this season and 3-4 on all other days. Weekend warriors, I tell you.

Georgetown Hoyas and Jason Clark beat Villanova Wildcats, 103-90 - washingtonpost.com
Unlike three weeks ago, when Villanova exploited a sloppy, sluggish start by the Hoyas to win on its home court, seventh-ranked Georgetown (17-5, 7-4 Big East) came out blazing and torched the Wildcats from three-point range to bolt to a 23-point lead with 1 minute 44 seconds remaining in the first half.

Much to the delight of the fans that braved the cold and snow, the Hoyas’ offense was red hot all day. The 50 first half points were the most Georgetown had scored in any half of the season until they posted 53 in the second half. It was the first time that Georgetown scored 100 points in a Big East regular season game that did not go into overtime since 1996.
