What the professionals are saying about the Hoyas


Hoyas enjoy an easy night against Longwood - Washington Times
Later in the half, freshman forward Stephen Domingo missed a wide-open layup after a perfectly executed back-cut, perhaps showing a bit of rust.

That said, rebounding remains a weakness of the Hoyas. On Monday, it was the one area in which Longwood excelled; it outrebounded Georgetown, 36-26. “It’s always a concern when you’re outrebounded,” Thompson said. “It’s not something we’re going to put our head in the sand and act like it didn’t happen.”

When your number is called your ready. This is the type of team the Hoyas have. Versatile. Just sub in and out. Good rotation of players.

It was just good to see all of our team on the basketball in the "phone booth."

The point total for Georgetown (8-1) against Longwood (2-8) was much bigger than the Hoyas managed in two of their last three wins.

This is one of those games that the Hoyas so desperately needed. After winning game in the 30s, then winning one in the 40s, I’m not sure they could’ve taken another game like that and still have been taken seriously. Markel Starks also was able to break his own slump with 17 points on 6-of-9 shooting, including 4-of-5 from three-point range.
