Media coverage of yesterday's affair against American, not much because DC was more concerned with the snow.
"I think we are a significantly better team this year than we were at the start of the season," Thompson said. "Hopefully, we keep moving in that direction. We're getting better."
"They just do a great job with Monroe and [Julian] Vaughn and Sims of taking away any shots you get inside," Jones said. "I think [Georgetown] has the ability to be very good. Certainly from what I saw where I sat today and what I saw on film, I think they have a chance to be one of the best teams in the nation by the season's end."
The game marked the end of a three-game, feel-good homestand for the No. 16 Hoyas and was the final tuneup before they face their first ranked opponent, No. 23 Butler, in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday.
"[American assistant coach] Robert Burke was pointing out to our guys that Jason [Clark] has great anticipation with a seven-foot plus wingspan so he can really play the passing lanes," American Head Coach Jeff Jones said after the game. "We were kind of hanging around and all of a sudden he makes big plays and gets big baskets."
Three players scored in double figures and nine different players scored at least one basket as No. 16 Georgetown used a balanced attack en route to a 65-36 win over District rival American in front of 10,465 fans at Verizon Center on a snowy day in Washington.
