Well, That Was Easy. Georgetown Defeats UNC Greensboro 86-45, Moves To 2-0 On The Season

Georgetown followed up its victory over Savannah State on Saturday by crushing UNC Greensboro Monday night to the tune of 86-45.  The Hoyas were led by the 1-2 punch of Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark, both of whom had 19 points. The Hoyas were all over the court, defending and rebounding in a way Georgetown faithful haven't seen in quite some time.

Thompson was particularly effective today, scoring 19 points on 7-10 shooting with 5 three pointers.  Clark set the tone on offense and defense, aggressively attacking the basket and UNC Greensboro's ballhandlers.  Henry Sims, Nate Lubick, and Markel Starks each had solid games as well, chipping in a combined 23 points.

More thoughts after The Jump.

The Georgetown freshmen looked stellar again, with Tyler Adams seeing his first collegiate action.  One can see how much the freshmen have impacted the team already.  Clearly, competition at practice has been fierce, and it has carried over to the first two games.  For the first time in quite some time, there are no players above playing 100% on both sides of the ball.  There are too many hungry and versatile players on this roster to not give it all on both offense and defense.  Otto Porter, Greg Whittington, Mikael Hopkins, and Jabril Trawick are all ready to contribute and can play multiple positions.

So far so good for Georgetown through their first two games, but the real test comes next week when they face Kansas in Maui, Hawaii.  All things considered, Hoya fans have to feel good about the effort and execution thus far.  We've said it before, we'll say it again, this year is going to have its ups and downs, but it is going to be a blast.
