While there’s always enough time for the Georgetown Hoyas to be made fun of after scheduling one of the weakest non-conference dockets in the history of big boy basketball, some people have been duped by overall win-loss record Patrick Ewing has acquired in his first season manning the helm.
Despite that, as well as some great play from Marcus Derrickson against DePaul, Ewing’s temperament might soon come under question.
That’s Ewing going off on Derrickson, who is second on the team in scoring and finished against the Blue Demons with 24 points on Wednesday.
But wait, there’s more! There is always more.
Early in this #Hoyas win, Coach Ewing had a question for Derrickson: "Do you want to play for me?"
That is a heck of a lot of yelling at one of Georgetown’s best players. Then again, since the Hoyas played the 351st ranked non-conference schedule, the pressure was insanely high in this game.
Correct, astute reader. Beating DePaul gave Georgetown its best win of the season. Seriously, allow that to sink in for a minute, as DePaul hasn’t exactly been confused with being a good basketball program for a few decades. It is like beating up a telephone, then claiming it to be the equivalent of fist-fighting Mike Tyson.
Georgetown is 11-3 on the season, with a record of 1-2 in Big East play.
