CHARLESTON, S.C. -- After a full day of watching the action at Thursday's Charleston Classic, here are five impressions I walked away with:

1. Georgetwon not only has the top backcourt in the Big East, but has one of the best in the country. Jason Clark, Chris Wright and Austin Freeman combined for 54 of the Hoyas' 80 points in Thursday's win over Coastal Carolina. More impressively, they combined to shoot 67 percent from the field and 60 percent from behind the arc. Freeman was plagued with foul trouble in the first half and was only able to drop 6 points in seven minutes. The second half was a different story, though, as he and Clark scored 14 apiece in a run that closed the deal. Wright was directing traffic as he led his team with 12 assists. Georgetown's offense reminded me a lot of the Phoenix Suns. A lot of dribble hands-off mixed with a ton of backdoor cuts. Julian Vaughn will continue to be critical for this team's success as he is the Hoyas' most consistent inside scoring threat.
