UPDATE #3: Here is Gene Wang's writeup of the event. He has some very good quotes from JTIII, DSR, and Isaac as well as some other tidbits from the day.
"I just try to let the guys know how big this is, not only for myself but for Georgetown, for just our community and D.C.," Smith-Rivera said. "I think we have a very talented group. We have a high ceiling as far as our capability and what we can do. As a team, we have to be strong and push the younger guys to understand what we have to do to get there."
“At the end of the year, everybody is going to look at who finishes where in the end-of-the-year standings, who wins the championship at conference tournament time,” Hoyas sophomore forward Isaac Copeland said about being picked second. “I mean, it’s a nice little accolade or whatever, but what’s more important is at the end of the year.”
