“Moses rebounded well, which is something that we need,” Thompson said. “It’s a situation where guys are going to be ready once they get in. We all expect that once you get in the game, they should do what they should without much drop off.”
That’s not to say this was a perfect game for the Hoyas – shockingly, the tiny Lancers outrebounded Georgetown by a 36-26 margin, highlighting a season-long issue in which the lengthy Hoyas have been outworked on the glass.
And, aside from Markel Starks’ 4-for-5 effort from beyond the arc, Georgetown’s other shooters were 2-for-14 from 3-point range.
But, for once, the Hoyas could breathe easy in the final 10 minutes of a game, with the sparse Verizon Center crowd and the Georgetown starters celebrating the achievements of the bench players, forgoing the drama of their previous contests.
“We struggled last game with our offense, so to be able to get some offense out of our turnovers was a little boost for us,” said forward Nate Lubick, who finished with six points, seven assists and four rebounds.
