At 9:30 a.m., the coach already had his game face on. Always does on gameday. I'm told not to even bother trying to acknowledge him at any time prior to a game, he'll essentially look right through you.
Apparently, Calhoun's game face transferred over to his players. That was a "Wow!" first-half performance by the Huskies, who shot 50 percent, ran the court beautifully, got 12 points (including three jaw-dropping dunks) from Stanley Robinson and 10 from Jamal Coombs-McDaniel (who hit his first four shots, including a pair of 3's).
Meanwhile, Georgetown shot 8-for-27 (29.6 percent), and went nearly the last 10 minutes without a field goal, going 0-for-10 in that span as the Huskies outscored them, 22-2.
Maybe the Hoyas really aren't that good. Maybe the Huskies are a lot better than a lot of us (myself included) thought they were.
