Smith-Rivera leads Georgetown over DePaul, 70-53

NEW YORK (AP) John Thompson III sounded like a coach whose team had just ended a six-game losing streak.

"Oh, man, it feels a lot better than losing," he said after Georgetown beat DePaul 70-53 in the first round of the Big East Tournament on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.

"You go through the stretch that we've been through. It's hell. It's really, really hard. You go through a stretch where we're not winning, but they fought. Every single game we fought. I keep saying, `OK, it's going to turn around, it's going to turn around, it's going to turn around.' Having the big fella back, being here in this city, being here in this building, this tournament, it feels good. It feels good."
