But looking ahead, the work goes on for Thompson III and Georgetown.
"I think [that] without a doubt, putting another big banner in McDonough is our goal. Without a doubt, cutting the nets down in Madison Square Garden on Saturday night is our goal. But there are so many other things that you can look at, both positively and negatively."
And on the positive side of that ledger, Thompson III took a group of young, inexperienced players and turned them into a national contender. Six freshmen and sophomores received significant playing time, which will translate to a more experienced roster next season. Despite another early NCAA tournament exit, John Thompson III excelled in a season that could have easily gone the other way.
