The Georgetown Hoyas were defeated by the Marquette Golden Eagles on Friday night. The Hoyas were defeated 92-64 at Capitol One Arena in Washington, D.C.
While the loss was one story, the main story comes after the game. Head coach Patrick Ewing is not happy with his players following the loss.
The loss dropped the Hoyas to 6-6 on the season. Georgetown was playing its first game since December 18th.
Their previous four games were postponed.
The Hoyas scored 37 points in the first half. The team then struggled in the second half, as they scored just 27 points.
The team shot 29.9% from the field.
“We did not compete,” Ewing said after the game. “Every effort thing that we needed to do, we didn’t do it.”
Ewing — a former legend on the team before returning to be their head coach five years ago — said that the players are not living up to the Georgetown standard that he helped create years prior. Former head coach John Thompson created the standard that Ewing was referencing.
“As a player who helped build this program, I am disappointed in my team’s performance,” Ewing said. “This is not what Georgetown basketball is about. Big John is rolling over in his grace for the performance we showed tonight.”
Ewing said that the players are on notice.
