Hoyas senior C Henry Sims fights for rebound against Memphis in EA Maui Sports Invitational consolation game
Amazing, totally amazing Hoyanation, "thy will be done"! Hoyas (4-1). Seniors Henry Sims career high (24pts. 8 rebs.) shot 10-17 and led the Hoyas in assists (4) once again 4-5 from the free throw this was key also for the Hoyas having the bigs make their free throws. Senior leader Jason Clark (26 pts.) was in "killer attack mode". Four players were in double figures.
Get the ball down in the paint Henry and Jason Clark were in takeover mode all night. Henry makes real nice passes to his teammates on the dime. I've always said this. I guess watching Greg Monroe throw this pass to a perfection it rubbed off on Big Hank - that's okay with me! "We're getting better," Clark said. "I think we responded well after the loss after Kansas. I think everybody's starting to pay a lot more attention to what we need to do on the court."
Freshman F Otto Porter (9 pts. 8 rebs. 3 assists 4 steals 2 blks.) man, this young man is very productive. Freshmen G Jabril Trawick (4 pts.) was in lock down mode, and F Greg Whittington (4 pts. 2 rebs.) made a key follow up basket from teammate Henry Sims will little time to go in the game.
"In the Kansas game, I told our guys we made mistakes coming down the stretch that we can control," Thompson said. "Tonight we made plays as opposed to making mistakes at key points, so hopefully that's growth for this group."
CBS College basketball anaylst Jon Rothstein said on Twitter before and after the game:
Anxious to see how Georgetown's guards handle Memphis' pressure. Hoyas have been impressive early but PG spot is still biggest question.
Georgetown gets 50 combined from Henry Sims + Jason Clark to beat Memphis OT. Hoyas leave Maui brimming with confidence.
It's Like That Hoyas!
Great Job Hoyas!
WE ARE GEORGETOWN!
