Georgetown outlasted St. John’s 69-66 on Tuesday night in a competitive game that was reminiscent of the battles their two coaches, Chris Mullin of St. John’s and Patrick Ewing of Georgetown, had in their playing days for their alma maters.
For Ewing, it was emotional to get a win at Madison Square Garden after starring here for 15 years for the Knicks.
“It feels good,” said Ewing. “As you know I have had a lot of great memories here. I’ve had ups and downs and a lot of good and bad memories against that guy [Chris Mullin]. It was good to be back and the game was just like the old times, it was a knock down drag up fight. It was one of those ugly games, but I was just happy that we got the win. The guys fought hard, we made some mistakes, but we played hard. Especially the way that we played against Creighton this was a great way to bounce back. They did all the things they needed to do to get the win.”
