Georgetown Vs. Louisville: Reaction To Hoyas' Biggest Win of Season

The Georgetown Hoyas earned a statement win on Wednesday night when they traveled to Louisville and beat the previously undefeated Cardinals in impressive fashion. For the Hoyas, it's a win that will likely headline their resume come tournament time and validation of their arrival as a a contending team this year. Here is some reaction from our Georgetown blog Casual Hoya, who is pretty excited about the state of things right now.

"The freshmen challenged the starters to do better tonight, and the starters responded by closing out the game. Henry Sims has seen better days, yet there he was knocking down crucial layups and free throws to seal the victory. Jason Clark and Hollis Thompson provided leadership and important buckets in crunch time as well. Yet, the story of the night was Otto Porter. The small town kid from Missouri grabbed every rebound, including an enormous tip-in when the game was tied at 63, on the heels of an 11-0 Louisville run. The poise that he, Whittington, Trawick, and Hopkins showed tonight in the face of an undefeated Louisville team at home should make Hoya fans positively giddy about what the future holds."
