UCLA beats Cal in a thriller
By Dana O'Neil
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Unprompted, the booming voice in the back of the room launched into a slow, steady tutorial for his son standing at the podium.
"Ask them when they're going to compare you to your peers, not Pete Carril and your father," John Thompson Jr. bellowed. "You're never going to make a damn dime being compared to ancient people. You need to be compared to your peers, who you've done extremely well against, as opposed to your ancient dad and Pete Carril."
John Thompson III, whose Georgetown team's second consecutive Big East regular-season crown was just sewn up, simply smiled. Long accustomed to living in his father's looming shadow, JTIII isn't interested in chasing windmills, holding up the gene pool or living up to other people's standards.
He no longer has to. By winning back-to-back conference titles, the son accomplished something the Hall of Fame father never did. On a greater scale, the Hoyas' dogfight of a 55-52 victory over Louisville solidified Georgetown once more as a program, not simply a flash-in-the-pan team.
