It wasn't just a game, it was a championship game. The 3rd Annual 2010 Charleston Classic. No matter if it was earlier during the season because the Hoyas (5-0) are taking practices and games one step at a time. The coaches are coaching, the players are playing. The "Hoya Dream Season" is now in full stride. Hoyanation and friends, the Georgetown Hoyas are "champions" for the first time this season. In this tournament the Hoya challengers were Coastal Carolina Chanticleers, Wofford Terriers and championship challenger the North Carolina State Wolfpack.
The Hoyas win the championship game of the 2010 Charleston Classic 82-67with sheer determintion, focus, poise and great teammwork against the N.C. State Wolfpack. Freeman finished with 15 points and Clark had 14 in the championship finale. Georgetown Hoyas came into the final after displaying depth, versatility, power and long-range accuracy earlier in the tournament. Hoyas' Hollis Thompson scored 18 points, Chris Wright added 17 and the Hoyas used a 15-0 second half run to power past the Wolfpack. "This just shows that any night we can fight adversity," said Wright, selected the tournament's MVP.
"This whole experience, I think we can build upon," Thompson said after Georgetown's 82-67 victory over North Carolina State. "When league play starts, you have to come prepared every night," Thompson continued. "We're going to play good teams every night and we have to mentally, physically, emotionally be honed in and focused like we were in the second half tonight."
Quote from N.C. State Coach Sidney Lowe: "They beat us," North Carolina State coach Sidney Lowe said. "They took advantage of their experience."
