"I just made shots in the gym," Smith-Rivera said afterward. " I go in every day, get repetitions, and I’m putting up shots. That’s pretty much what it was."

"It took me a little while," Smith-Rivera said. "But it's a comfort level and I'm starting to feel a lot more comfortable with the system and our team in general, we have a lot of young guys so I think it's like that for everybody."

"We just let him get open shots," said DePaul reserve Jamee Crockett (10 points), who admitted the Blue Demons may have been focused more on Georgetown standouts Otto Porter, Jr. and Markel Starks.

Coming off the bench, the stocky Thompsonian guard racked up 33 points on 10-of-12 (83%) shooting, hit 5-of-6 threes and 8-of-10 free throws. It was the most points scored by a Georgetown freshman since Victor Page put up 34 in the 1996 Big East Tournament. It also warrants some further research to determine the last time anyone accumulated as many points shooting 80% or higher from both the field, three-point and free throw lines. We’ll look into it.

Thompson, already nervous by nature before every tipoff, said he was more jittery than usual because of all the attention that has given to the Syracuse game. In addition, he said his team had "probably the worst practice of the year by far" on Tuesday. Asked what was wrong with it, he said "everything." "I don't have the energy," he said, "to revisit yesterday's practice."

The team’s recent play begs the question: will the Hoyas lose in any of their remaining games in the regular season? They have already won eight in a row, but they have to face the No. 8 Syracuse Orangemen on Saturday in Syracuse, N.Y. In addition, even if they do get by the ‘Cuse on Saturday, they have to face them one more time at home.

On D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera's big night... He's coming along. What he did tonight, he can do. He puts the ball in the basket. As the year has progressed, he's gotten a little more comfortable. He knows where his shots are coming from. One thing you've heard me say about him, is he has the ability to score like he did today, but he also has the ability to get others involved and get his teammates shots, so he has the responsibility to do both.
G L I D E H O Y A S: Hoyas steam roll the Blue Demons
Love the way the Hoyas kept the ship churning full steam ahead and didn't look back. This was key. Score 90-66. This game performance definitely is a great sign of maturity especially this time of the year. It' Februarymadness! A preview of what's to come. The race for the Big East crown is as tight as it gets, but have no fear our Hoyas are here. One game at a time is all we're worried about, nothing else.
