Hoyas coach lauds Jayhawks


Georgtown coach John Thompson III, whose Hoyas were ranked 28th this week in the AP poll, spoke about the Jayhawks on Tuesday.

“They are very multifaceted,” he said. “They have a lot of different people and different ways that can hurt you. They’re getting to the foul line. They get fouled a lot. Last year, out there (in 86-64 loss to KU in Allen), we got in foul trouble quickly, and that is a concern. Then they have guys that can take you off the dribble, guys that can make shots. This is a very balanced team.”

Asked if it was important to win, he said: “You put games like this on your schedule to win. As much last year that I can remember, we weren’t in it offensively, defensively, for whatever the reasons the stars were not aligned properly last year. It was a difficult evening, a very, very difficult evening. So the guys that were here remember that, and if they’ve forgotten we’ve watched enough tape to remind them of that. Big picture I don’t know, national scene this that and the other, I don’t know. But it’s important that we play well against them.”
