Hoya head man John Thompson III was as animated as I had ever seen him on the sidelines, especially when Scottie Reynolds gave Villanova the lead to stay late in the second half.

Chris Wright struggled on Sunday, 1-7 from the field and 0-5 outside the arc. Wright picked up his fourth foul with 12:19 to play and was swapped out on defense from there on out when there were stoppages in play.

Center Julian Vaughn went to the bench after his second foul at the 15:27 mark, called for the charge. Vaughn did not score against Villanova in 17 minutes of action.

Like he did in the second half against UConn, Austin Freeman sparked the Hoya comeback. Freeman scored 10 points in the first 3:37 after intermission and finished with 17 in the second frame.

Corey Fisher scoops a shot under Greg Monroe, sliding over in the hope of drawing an offensive foul.

Jason Clark hit three times from outside in the first half and finished with 16 points.

Monroe was a force inside - A career best 29 points on 9-13 shooting and matching his career high with 16 rebounds. Monroe also hit his sixth career three pointer, his fourth of the season.

Freshman forward Hollis Thompson had plenty of clean looks but could not convert any of them. Thompson was 0-7 on the afternoon, 0-5 from outside. Designed inbounds plays to Thompson in each corner (the "Brian Earl play" from JTIII's days at Princeton) were wide open but off target.

Thompson had an offensive rebound with :47 left and Georgetown down three, but threw a cross-court pass out of a double team into the hands of Villanova's Corey Stokes.

Coach Thompson questions a call. There were 52 fouls and 57 free throws on Sunday afternoon.

Georgetown fell to 13-3, 4-2 in the Big East. Villanova improves to 16-1, an unblemished 5-0 in conference.
