Kentucky was looking for a star heading into this season. We didn’t know who their best player was going to be this year, and to be frank, we don’t know for sure if it actually is Maxey or if he just got hot at the right time in the right building.

The Hoyas head to Madison Square Garden to face No . 22 Texas on Thurday and then either No. 1 Duke or California in the 2K Empire Classic. Through the first four games of the Georgetown Hoyas ’ young season, at least one piece of Coach Patrick Ewing ’s roster has lived up to its high billing.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Patrick Ewing walked onto the Madison Square Garden court waving his arms and exhorting the crowd to cheer louder.

Some chanted for the Hoyas.

BOX SCORE: GEORGETOWN 82, NO. 22 TEXAS 66

But as the final seconds ticked off the clock, those booming chants turned to ones for the coach: “Patrick Ewing! Patrick Ewing! Patrick Ewing!”

Maybe this win wasn’t as big for Ewing as beating the Pacers or the Bulls in playoff games. For a few moments for the former New York Knicks great, the Garden was home again.

“It felt like back in my Knick days,” Ewing said.

Mac McClung scored 19 points to help give Ewing another signature moment at Madison Square Garden, leading Georgetown to an 82-66 victory over No. 22 Texas on Thursday night.

The Hoyas (4-1) used a 12-0 run early in the second half that rallied the crowd and had "Let's go Hoyas!" chants echoing throughout the arena. With his retired No. 33 New York Knicks jersey hanging in the rafters, Ewing helped orchestrate another wild one at his favorite arena.

The Hoyas won the 1985 Big East Men's Basketball Tournament, their second straight Big East Tournament championship and the fourth in Ewing , who sportswriters and opposing fans had often accused of lacking the intellect to perform academically at Georgetown, graduated on time in May 1985.

“This is still my home. I still have a lot of fans here, still a lot of family here, still have a lot of supporters here, so it was a great night,” Ewing said. “And my team, these guys stepped up and got the job done.”

The Hoyas are trying to make their first NCAA Tournament since 2015 and an early win over a Top 25 team could give that resume a boost.

Ewing did his best to pump up the fans and the Hoyas.

The Hoyas made the charge to open the second half kept the pressure on to advance to the title game of the four-team tournament.

Ewing had beckoned Qudus Wahab up from the bench for a late first-half pep talk. Ewing had a few things to say to his 6-foot-11 freshman center and they ended the conversation with a fist bump.

Ewing's motivation eventually worked on his big man. Wahab had a thunderous dunk for a 54-52 lead and the active Hoyas defensive forced another turnover under Texas' basket. Ewing waved on the fast-break like a third base coach sending a runner home, and Terrell Allen scored to get the Garden fans up and going wild for the momentum shift. Ewing pumped his fist and the Hoyas were pushing for an upset

His 7-foot frame impossible to miss even from the cheap seats, Ewing took a few strides onto the court to rally the Garden one more time.

“I just wanted to let my team know we have a lot of support from Georgetown alumni here and we want them to stand up and do it again tomorrow,” Ewing said.

That pose is a familiar sight around New York.

Ewing's image is plastered inside and out at the Garden where he forged a Hall of Fame career.

Texas: The Longhorns are sure to fall out of the Top 25 and now have to win a consolation game to salvage something out of their trip to New York. Matt Coleman made all six 3-pointers and scored 22 points for the Longhorns (4-1). Texas lost with former Longhorn and injured Nets center Kevin Durant watching courtside. Former Longhorn and Nets center Jarrett Allen also rooted on Texas from a courtside seat.

Texas moved into the Top 25 this for the first time this season and for the first time since November 2018. Texas, though, shot only 37% from the floor and had 12 turnovers.
