NEW YORK -- Georgetown coach John Thompson III has a remarkable knack for making a difficult game sound simple.Take, for instance, his approach to guarding Dominique Jones. The South Florida star ripped apart the Hoyas the last time the two teams met, and was coming off an impressive performance that helped his team reach the second round of the Big East tournament.
• Georgetown held South Florida to just 29.6 percent shooting, including 1-for-10 on 3-pointers.
• The Bulls are the third Georgetown opponent this season to shoot under 30 percent.
• Greg Monroe and Jason Clark each scored 16 points to lead the Hoyas. Monroe has scored 15-plus points in seven straight games.
