This was the blowout for which Georgetown and its fans have been waiting, although, even in a 36-point victory, there were a few caveats.
Mike Gillian operated in a different dimension of college basketball for the better part of a decade. Next week, the Longwood coach and the rest of his school's athletic department finally will be on the same plane as nearly everyone else.
"There's good length and good defense and good pressure, obviously, but you can't go through a game like that and give up 27 points off 18 turnovers [in the first half]," Longwood coach Mike Gillian said.
"When I first came, it was not the proverbial glass half-full analogy," Gillian said. "There was a glass there that didn't have anything in it and was waiting to be filled up. … The optimists will say the glass is half-full. When you put it in front of them with nothing in it, they're going to say it's empty. Not too many people say it's waiting to be filled."
