One former Georgetown player rates among the NBA's top rookies this season, 76ers swingman Hollis Thompson.
The surroundings were familiar, but the uniform was different for Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark. The former Georgetown stars found themselves back at Verizon Center last week to work out for the Washington Wizards, the latest step in their attempts to forge a professional career heading into next Thursday's NBA Draft.
There was sorrow in the Georgetown locker room Sunday afternoon, unadulterated anguish as the Hoyas were left to come to terms with how their latest season had come to a close.
Lorenzo Brown hit three free throws in the final 10.6 seconds and North Carolina State conjured up its glorious tradition with a 66-63 upset of third-seeded Georgetown in a Midwest Regional on Sunday.
Quiet filled the locker room.
Georgetown fumbled its date with destiny on Saturday.
Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark scored 13 points each and No. 10 Georgetown shut down Providence's shooters for the second time this season in a 63-53 victory Saturday night.
Georgetown's unexpected ascent into the rarified air of the college basketball elite is one of the year's biggest storylines. But with tournament season fast approaching, the Hoyas will have to prove once again their top-10 ranking isn't a result of overinflation.
Nate Lubick is difficult to miss. Built like an NFL tight end at 6-foot-8 and 235 pounds, Lubick specializes in the dirty, bruising work in the post. But the ex-Parade All-American's sophomore season has been fraught with inconsistency.
Down a dark tunnel at Madison Square Garden gushed a cold breeze, past stacked silver beer kegs and ushers with earpieces and, finally, onto the basketball court where Hollis Thompson stood.
The Redskins are awful, and the Capitals are disappointing. The Nationals could be a year away; Mark Turgeon's Terrapins might be two. And the Wizards will be 0-7 unless they somehow manage to upset the New York Knicks on Friday at Verizon Center.
Hollis Thompson never met a shot he didn't like.
Hollis Thompson found just the right spot for a game-winning shot: Right in front ofGeorgetown's bench.
Two people close to Georgetown's Hollis Thompson expect the sophomore will return to school after declaring for the NBA draft last week.
Hollis Thompson responded to his benching with 15 points and six rebounds, and No. 21 Georgetown brought its Jersey success home to a snowbound nation's capital Wednesday night with a 77-52 win over St. John's.
Hollis Thompson said he'll go along with whatever his coach wants.
"Coach obviously knows what he's doing, so when he tells you you're not starting, it's for the best of the team," Hollis Thompson said. "Whatever's best for the team, I'm going to support."
