Don’t look now but Georgetown just notched a big non-conference road win, beating Illinois 88-80. Hoyas coach Patrick Ewing was loose and conversational with the FS1 studio team after the game, at one point praising freshman James Akinjo for “showing some nut.”
Ewing quickly realized that it’s best to use “cajones,” the anatomical correct term. Doug Gottlieb later suggested “lower intestinal fortitude,” which is a helpful term when trying to pad inches in a newspaper story.
On a less jocular note, Akinjo and young backcourt mate Mac McClung should be very fun to watch this year as the proud program tries to make it back to the NCAA Tournament.
