Thompson Gets POSTERIZED, Lol...

<-- This photo to the left pretty much says it all as far as the title of this post & although this particular play wasn't made by my favorite team (but rather against it,) it definitely deserved some face-time! I'm positive it's been all over SportCenter as well, lol.

Hollis Thompson will likely find a new place to camp-out near the basket from this point & guard-forward D.J. Stephens certainly didn't mind demonstrating why when he received a pass from a Tiger teammate & elevated before slamming the ball through the hoop with authority - knocking a flat-footed, stationary Thompson to the hardwood I'm shame.

To make things even worse, upon returning from a commercial break, the camera's caught Hoya guard Austin Freeman & Stephens laughing about the play - that's pretty cold when your own teammate can't even hold the laughter in, lol. But I have to admit that I got a pretty good chuckle out of it as well. They're gonna hound him all season long for this one - I know I sure would if he were my teammate.

As for the game itself, the #10 Georgetown Hoyas cruised to another impressive non-conference road victory over #16 Memphis to improve to 10-1, the final tally was 86-69. The game served as the final tune-up for the start of Big East Conference play - Wednesday the Hoyas will travel to South Bend, Indiana to take on Notre Dame.

As has become typical, Freeman led all scorers with 24 (shooting 66% from 3-pt land), while guard Chris Wright (19 pts) & forward Julian Vaughn (15 pts, 10 rebs & 4 blks) had strong performances as well against a talented, but young Memphis team. It was just the kind of game the Hoyas needed to finish off what as been a grueling non-conference schedule.

Hoya reserve center Henry Sims provided a little more presence in the low-post tonight, he managed only 2 points scoring-wise, but in 17 minutes he blocked 3 shots, had 5 assists & brought in 2 rebounds. He displayed more athleticism tonight than he has in many of the previous games, hopefully it's a sign of his future involvement in G'town's game plan moving forward.
