"We want to get baskets off transition," Thompson says. "Our defense is predicated on that. We press so we can run. I'm not as concerned about opponents collapsing on Patrick as much as whether we play good defense, get the ball and run. Then you don't give the other team a chance to collapse. We didn't respond well to those defenses at times last year because we weren't experienced enough with that kind of situation." The Hoyas have that experience now. And with Brown fit, Williams added to the outside arsenal and Ewing more mature, they may have an inside path to Seattle.
