John Thompson's Georgetown Hoyas entered the 1990-91 ranked inside the Top 10 and boasting twin tower centers, Alonzo Mourning and Dikembe Mutombo.
The "Great Wall" held Duke stars Grant Hill, Bobby Hurley and Christian Laettner to a combined 9-42 from the field in a 79-74 win over the Blue Devils. An injury to Mourning forced him to miss 9 games and the Hoyas struggled to regain early season form until late in the season when they made a run to the BIG EAST Championship Game.
Georgetown earned an #8 seed in the West Region of the NCAA Tournament where they lost to eventual National Champion UNLV, 62-54. Even in their early exit Georgetown's version of the Twin Towers left their mark on college basketball history.
"Both of them are capable of blocking shots pretty well. They present a good wall, you know. They're tall."
