Porter gets hit in the face, then sparks Georgetown’s rout of Villanova
From there, Georgetown went about its methodical business, stifling the Wildcats’ offense and forcing Villanova into tying or season-lows in points, field goals (14), field-goal attempts (50), field-goal percentage (28 percent), assists (eight) and rebounds (26).
It was a far cry from the Hoyas disastrous defensive performance last Tuesday at Seton Hall.
“We were not very good defensively against Seton Hall, and we were very good today,” Thompson III said. “From our perspective, from what we did and how we executed, I thought we were 180 degrees from where we were the other day.”
Porter led a balanced offensive attack for the Hoyas, scoring 15 points (along with Clark) to lead four double-figure scorers. And make no mistake, he certainly had some extra motivation after getting nailed.
“I was fired up and so were my teammates,” he said. “They kind of read my mind.”
Note: Sophomore PG Markel Starks did not play Saturday, despite being healthy. A report in the Newark Star-Ledger said that he and Thompson III exchanged words at the end of the Seton Hall contest. Thompson was noncommittal when pressed about Starks, saying twice, “I just wanted to play Otto and not play Starks.”
