The Morning After: Hot Shooting by Starters; 'Youngins' Continue to Impress

No. 15 Georgetown throttles Loyola (Md.), 99-75, at Verizon Center
"I was extremely nervous coming into this game just because of exams, no practice, or sporadic practice, and not 100 percent attendance at practice," Thompson said. "I wasn't sure how sharp we were going to be." Thompson's concern, as it turned out, was completely unwarranted. In the opening 20 minutes, the Hoyas (10-1) made 14 of their 15 two-point attempts and sank 4 of 8 from beyond the three-point arc as they pushed their lead to a 50-27 at the intermission. They entered the game tied for third in the nation in shooting percentage (51.3). "Who missed it?" Thompson playfully inquired, referring to the first half's single wayward two-point shot.

"I know in the second half we gave up a lot of threes because we were helping too much probably," Thompson said. "I said this recently, our bigger guys have to do a better job of helping [our guards] on ball screens. We’re going to run into them all year against better competition each night. As a group, as a focal point, we have to get better at that. We’re getting better, but it has to continue to grow."

"School is tough," said Chris Wright, who had 11 points and a scruffy beard that gave him the look of someone who hasn't shaved in a week. "As you can see, I don't have no haircut. I've been in the books.
