GEORGETOWN BASKETBALL PREGAME VIDEO 2010-2011
WE ARE GEORGETOWN!
Hoyanation and friends it's been a great ride so far for the Hoyas during the "Hoya Dream Season", and it continues on tomorrow against Big South Conference's University of North Carolina-Asheville Bulldogs (2-2). Junior Matt Dickey is the leader in scoring for the Bulldogs at 18.8 pts. per outing. The Bulldogs biggest upset win came against the Auburn Tigers of the Southeastern Conference 70-69 on 11/12/10.
The Hoyas (5-0) are coming off of a great quality championship win the 3rd Annual 2010 Charleston Classic in South Carolina against the ACC's North Carolina State. Senior Austin Freeman leads the Hoyas in scoring at 17.8 points per game.
The other two teams in the Charleston Classic they Hoyas beat were Coastal Carolina Chanticleers and the Wofford Terriers. "I definitely feel this is a confidence builder," said Thompson, who entered the game shooting 36 percent from the floor. "Now that I'm on the right track, I need to stay on the path. I just think its the law of averages. I know I'm a good shooter, so I'm going to keep shooting and they're going to fall."
Quotes in the Washington Post 11/22/10 from the Hoyas 2010 Charleston Championship win:
"We have a lot of pieces of in our locker room and on any given night were going to need different people, when they're called upon, to step up," Georgetown Coach John Thompson III said. "Everyone on our team has confidence in one another and a true understanding that it's going to be different people who are going to step up, and tonight those two were key."
Thompson feels his team proved something to itself by sweeping three quality teams in four nights:
"The whole experience here, starting with playing with Coastal Carolina, which won their conference last year, to Wofford, which won their conference last year, and end up in the championship game against N.C. State," he said. "The whole experience is something we can build upon. What this group has to get quickly, by the time league play starts, is that you have to come prepared every night. The style of play of the opposition may be different. The personnel will be different. But we're going to play good teams every night. We're going to have to be focused like we were in the second half there as we head toward league play."
"From watching each game of the 3rd Annual 2010 Charleston Classic, showed me how much this Hoya team plays unselfish, smart, hard, consistent basketball with a sense of urgency. The are a cohesive unit and play well together as a team and are well prepared and coached."
