Mountaineers F Deniz Kilicli said the offense owes a debt to West Virginia. "Our motion offense is the grandfather of what they’re running," he said. "That’s why we know what they’re going to do. We’re really familiar with what’s going to come. That’s why we’ve been good [against Georgetown]."

Postgame Quotes -
Georgetown coach John Thompson III I think that we got a couple possessions where it was tied and we had the ball and the ball didn't go in the basket. We could have been a little more patient during those times at the offensive end but again most of it was our turnovers, which led to a lot of transition baskets for them. Our work and our communication and our understanding at the defensive end wasn't where this team has been for the year and it wasn't where it needs to be.

Don't worry Hoyanation we'll get them Mountaineer's back when it really matters. The Hoyas will quickly "regroup." Don't we owe them one from the Big East Tourney. That game made me tear up, but I'm just patiently waiting for that rematch in the Big East Tourney. I know it's a ways from now, but that's just my vision. The Hoyas know they cannot hang their heads, they are looking forward to Monday night against Cincinnati. That's where the focus is because WE ARE GEORGETOWN!
