Towson Tigers vs. Georgetown Hoyas - Recap - December 08, 2012 - ESPN
The first time it was kind of funny. Win a game with 37 points? Hadn't seen anything like that since elementary school. The second time, Georgetown coach John Thompson III was more defensive about the offensiveness of his offense. He said he was concerned about the No. 15 Hoyas' lack of scoring in Saturday's 46-40 win over Towson, but not overly concerned. He insisted he has "good offensive players," but he said they are "immature offensively" and "have a lot of growing up to do."

Postgame Quotes - Georgetown University Official Athletic Site
On Georgetown's defense... It was one of those games where we said, "let's make this as ugly as possible." I think you guys have heard me say, we can win in different ways. We can win at a fast pace, we can win at a slow pace, we can win what purists may call pretty, but we can also win ugly. I thought in the second half we had to win ugly today the way the first half went. We wanted to just pound it inside and our guys figured out if we keep doing that we're going to get fouled because of how they were playing us. Defensively we junked it up a little bit.
