WASHINGTON (AP) — After watching Villanova make 3-pointer after 3-pointer and build a hard-to-fathom lead — 20, then 30, eventually all the way up to 44 — Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing did not want to offer any sort of assessment about what this game indicates about his team's status in relation to the No. 1 Wildcats.

NEW YORK (AP) — Patrick Ewing mostly kept his hands in his suit pockets as he paced the Madison Square Garden sideline.

"My body still aches from the years I played here," Ewing said, laughing.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Now that he's the team's coach, Patrick Ewing wants to figure out a way to return Georgetown basketball to the good ol' days.
All of that winning. All of that reputation.
"'Hoya Paranoia' was great," Ewing said during an interview as he prepares to make his sideline debut at his alma mater, with Georgetown hosting Jacksonville University on Sunday. "Everybody was against us. And I'd love to bring all of that back."
He punctuated that thought with his baritone chuckle.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Nearly three months after he was introduced as Georgetown's new basketball coach, Patrick Ewing has a staff of assistants and recruiters: Louis Orr, Robert Kirby and Akbar Waheed.
The school announced Ewing's choices on Monday.
Orr was the head coach at Bowling Green from 2007-14, at Seton Hall from 2001-06 and at Siena in 2000-01. He and Ewing were NBA teammates with the New York Knicks.
