GW > Georgetown

Obviously we all hoped to see 11th seeded GW play second-seeded Georgetown in the Sweet 16 last year. Obviously that didn't happen.


Pinnock (John McDonnell - The Post).

We did, however, get to see a Danilo PInnock-led Panama team play a Roy Hibbert-led U.S. team in the Pan Am Games yesterday. Both players starred--Hibbert led the U.S. with 19 points and 9 rebounds, and Pinnock (late of the Wizards summer league team) hit two key three-pointers and led Panama with 23 points and 5 assists.

Question: Why do we have to read PDF box scores from Brazil to see what happens when GW plays Georgetown?

Key quotes:

Jay Wright: "I thought (Danilo) Pinnock in the second half just got it going, we had no answer for him in the second half."

Drew Neitzel: "We let Pinnock get hot and he kind of turned the game around."

Hibbert: "(Being here) means a lot because I get to wear USA across my chest. I've dreamed about that since I was a little kid, so I'm just going to have to try to pull a win. No matter what happens, in the end, we just have to keep our heads up and just keep playing."

At least the women won Pan Am gold, with Terp Marissa Coleman playing a significant role.
