Monroe ready to help team next year

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Georgetown center Greg Monroe says Thursday's 97-83 loss to Ohio wasn't his last game as a Hoya.

But the 6-foot-11 sophomore, who averaged 16 points and 9.5 rebounds this season, also said he hasn't thought much about his future.

"I'm ready to go back and see how I can help my team next year," he said.

Monroe had 19 points and 13 rebounds for Georgetown, which finished 23-11.

Coach John Thompson III said he doesn't think anyone should hold Monroe to what he says a half hour after the season ends.

"You know, I think that he's going to sit and make that decision as time goes on right here," he said.
