Defense keys Georgetown’s rout of Notre Dame
Hoyas improve to 22-6 while winning home finale
That perception was reality; Notre Dame never closed within two possessions the rest of the way. When Georgetown wasn’t harassing them, the Irish were missing open shots with regularity and not doing much else to help themselves.
“The karma wasn’t good tonight, and a lot of that was Georgetown’s doing,” Brey said. “They got the 50/50 balls [and] putbacks. We couldn’t defensive rebound.”
Georgetown could do that, and a whole lot more. Eventually, it ended for Brey and the Irish, and the return trip to South Bend couldn’t come soon enough.
The Hoyas crafted yet another response to last week’s low moment, provided an all-around effort to silence another strong team and offered yet more reason to think this bunch won’t bow out quietly in March like their recent predecessors.
“This is definitely how we can play defense,” Clark said. “This is what I’m striving for. We had some games in the past when we played defense like this. I think if we play defense like this every single game, we’ll be a very good team.”
