Yes We Can! Georgetown Hoyas defeat the Duke Blue Devils 89-77

"[Last year] is over, its done. This is a much different team," said Thompson. "I think this team can beat anyone in the country if we do what were capable of, and they know that."

In front of numerous dignitaries including President Obama and Vice President Biden, the Georgetown Hoyas beat the Duke Blue Devils in impressive fashion, 89 - 77 at Verizon Center.  Chris Wright and Greg Monroe led the Hoyas with 21 points each, and Austin Freeman chipped in 20 as Georgetown's 'Big Three' made a big statement on national TV.  Georgetown shot a blistering 71% from the field and the defense held Duke to 37%.


The Hoyas improved to a whopping 16-0 when Chris Wright scores in double figures, and are now 1-0 when Obama and Biden take in a game from courtside.  For an interesting read, check out the press pool report of Obama at the game.

We'll have more on this one later, but for now, soak it in and get hammered Georgetown fans, this was a big win.  

Are we looking at a 2 seed?
