#22 Hoya Julian Vaughn stretching in for two points in a 97-64 win against the Lafayette Leopards
The hype for the Hoyas was definitely felt in the Verizon Center, as the "redemption dream season" continues as the Hoyas beat the Leopards 9of Lafayette College 97-64. It was like rapid fire 3 point bombs from everywhere, Jason Clark and Hollis Thompson bombs away career days and more to come baby. Chris Wright's steady point guard play and heart led the attack In the beginning minutes of the it seems the Hoyas had to let the turkey digest and get down to business. The Hoyas shook it off and they did. They stuck together, dug in, stayed focused and won at a pace that fun to watch. I think this game was a great game for the Hoyas in knowing this will help them work harder on defending the perimeter in future games against better perimeter shooting teams such as Butler and Duke. Most of perimenter play is "communication". The more "communication" the better. I think that will get better because there are many leaders on our Hoya team. Everyone can play and will play when called on. The coaches have let the players know they have all the confidence in the world in them, and I think this is "extremely" important for these student first, basketball second young men. Sometimes I just can't mention one player because I'm a team player, but I have to give special props to everyone on that team from the coaching staff to the players. They're like a family and it's a beautiful thing to watch especially during these holidays. Hoyanation and friends it will get even better because WE ARE GEORGTOWN!
"I don't go into a game saying: 'We need four, five, six guys in double figures,' " Thompson said. "We have a bunch of guys in that locker room that can score points. Who scores the points is irrelevant to this group." For Jason Clark's whole career, everyone talked about, 'He's too little, he's going to wear down.' He hasn't yet," Thompson said. "They're both scrawny little kids, but they haven't worn down." - Coach John Thompson III
"I take a lot of hits. They beat me up in practice. I don't have a lot of concerns about wearing down," Clark said. "[Iverson] plays hard the whole game, and that's what I try and do." - Sophomore sensation Jason Clark
