It wasn’t a bad performance considering the Hoyas’ youth — the roster includes 10 underclassmen — but Thompson was frustrated by their inability to come up with the big plays down the stretch. He also was bothered by his team’s inability to stop Kansas big man Thomas Robinson, who had 20 points, 12 rebounds and what Thompson said felt like 24 dunks.

After seeing his team fall 88-61 to Georgetown, Chaminade coach Eric Boivard had nothing but praise for the Hoyas. "Georgetown just shot the ball like crazy," he said. "(Jason) Clark is one of the quickest guys I’ve seen. And (Hollis) Thompson, is, man, he’s a pure shooter."

JTII appears to have a very promising player in freshman Otto Porter. Porter shone throughout the Kansas tilt, and he was great again Tuesday: 5-for-8 from the field, 6-for-6 from the line, 17 points, seven rebounds. It's still early, but this Georgetown team looks better than anyone expected. Porter is a big reason why.

"Most of my college career I hated my coach, and I love the man to death right now," Thompson said of former Princeton coach Pete Carrill. "I realized later that almost everything he said to me -- and I thought he was crazy -- he was right, and I was wrong. Now, Henry and I do not have the same relationship I had with Coach Carrill. But it's not about not being hard on people just because they don't want you to."

"It's always tough to have a late game and turn around and play early in the morning, especially, like Coach said, it was a very intense game, a very emotional game," Clark said.
