Both teams started slow, but the Hoyas finished strong! The Hoyas did 62-55. Both teams struggled to score early. I felt Georgetown had to settle down before the half, and they did. Cincy's crowd did too. It was another stellar defensive performance by the old blue and gray. The boys stayed poised and prevailed on the road in a very hostile environment. Big rainbow 3 point shot made by point guard Markel Starks (17 pts.) with 5:36 left in the game. He always comes through in the clutch knocking jump shot after jump shot.. Starks has done this all season.
Forward sensation Otto Porter (16 pts.) another stellar performance. In my opinion Otto is the best player in college basketball period. D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera (14 pts. 4 rebs., 2 asst.,) I can't call him a freshman anymore especially this time of the year. He's grown up and still continuing to grow.
The Hoyas shot 19-25 @ (76%) from the free throw line. Steady all year with this as a a team. Definitely something to keep working on. Free throws made are what dreams are made of. A championship. With a few of the Hoyas in foul trouble, there were no worries for me because I know the Hoyas have each other's back as they've done all along. The Hoyas are in first place in their conference and will not look back. It's about the home stretch. Keep climbing Hoyas! One game at a time.
Keep on taking us "High Hoyas!"
It's all up for grabs
Together, We Are Georgetown!
