Patrick Ewing and the Georgetown Hoyas are off to an impressive 3-0 start, with their latest win coming over Illinois on the road in matchup where they were eight-point underdogs. So please forgive Ewing for his little problematic slip-up in the postgame interview on FS1.

Ha! Not on live TV, Pat!
The Hoyas head coach was talking about James Akinjo, who went off for 19 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds and a steal in the team's 88-80 victory. He's paired in the backcourt with freshman Mac McClung, who also had a few highlight-reel plays in the win.
But Georgetown put together a balanced performance, with five players having double-digit point totals, and if they're going to make Coach Ewing thrilled to the point where he can't control what's coming out of his mouth, we definitely want to see more of it.
