Georgetown Hoyas (football)
PHILADELPHIA, PA - MARCH 22: head coach John Thompson III of the Georgetown Hoyas looks on as he coaches in the first half against the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles during the second round of the 2013 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament at Wells Fargo Center on March 22, 2013 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Dwight would have no chance [against Olajuwon] ... Howard is a good player, but his offensive skills are limited. He only has the Georgetown hook, a couple of spins in the baseline... Dwight is a great player, but there are things certain players can and can't do, and Hakeem could do a lot.
You've got a 7-foot-2 [player] being able to shoot that jump hook with both hands ... That's a tough move to stop at that size. Most Georgetown centers have that move. You just try to push him out, make him shoot it from a little further distance.
We welcome Mike Brennan back to the AU campus as our new men's basketball coach. He has achieved tremendous success as an assistant coach at prominent programs -- including Georgetown, Princeton, and AU -- and as a former student athlete at PrincetonMore quotes »
