PC off target in loss to Georgetown - The Sun Chronicle Online - Sports
The Friars surrendered just six offensive rebounds to the Hoyas. The Friars committed just eight turnovers.

"We were slow in the transition game," added Cooley. "That's the best defensive team I've seen in a long, long time. They are as long and physical as anybody."

"They've been as refreshing as hell," JT3 said. "They're just about winning. They aren't worried about their minutes or how many shots they get. Just how they can help the team win."
