Jimmy V Classic
Madison Square Garden
December 4, 2012
Texas vs. Georgetown

Georgetown Coach John Thompson III

On the Defensive effort:
"I thought we were attentive for the most part with the exception of foul shots and a few baskets in transition. I think they had to work for everything and that'S what we want them to do; we want them to earn their baskets. Our guys did a pretty good job of helping each other out today."

On the state of his team:
"We are a work in progress. I think that we're going to be much better than we are right now but with each passing day, the group is feeling a lot more confident. As a coach, you want to get to a point where you don't have to think about which players are in the game; you just take one(player) out and put another in, and we're getting there."

On winning the game:
"I think that it was a complete win. You come here and you win against a well-coached and talented team, they are young and still trying to figure things out but so are we. I'm happy to walk away with a win and we have an honest group of guys and they know we have a lot of room for improvement."

Forward Otto Porter

On his aggressiveness this year compared to last:
"The team and coaches want me to be aggressive and that is one thing I wanted to pick up coming into this year; to be more aggressive."

Forward Nate Lubick

On playing in Madison Square Garden:
"We're very familiar with Madison Square Garden and our conference tournament in here and like you said we play St. John's. We had some fans out tonight and I think that helped create some energy. It was pretty slow to start the game but being a little bit closer and being able to have some of our fans out here really helped us."

On the team's potential to improve:
"I think that's what makes this very exciting; the fact that we can get a lot better. There are a lot of things we can sharpen up on, on both sides of the floor. We're a young team and we don't really pay attention to those rankings too much but we are just very excited to get better."
