Georgetown - Cincinnati Sets Basketball Back

Not a pretty overtime period at all from these two teams. The five minute period had only eight points scored between the two squads with Cinci winning 5-3 and ultimately taking the game 64-62.
And those five minutes? Well let's just say I've seen better offensive basketball at much lower levels. In fact in watching St. Benedicts - Mater Dei, I'm wondering why Mick Cronin and JTIII aren't doing the same and taking notes.
The Bearcats missed all three of their shots, with Greg Monroe blocking the last one as they tried to ice the game. Throw in 3 turnovers and no attempt to get Deonta Vaughn going and it was anemic.
Luckily for them, the Hoyas were worse. Much worse. 0-8 from the field. They made things worse by going only 3-6 from the free throw line. That was the difference.
That's 6 losses in the last 7 for Georgetown, and they're ruining a great freshman campaign from Monroe, who had another great line last night: 13 points, 6 rebounds, 5 steals, 2 assists and a block. But only 4-12 from the field and all three of his misses from the charity stripe in OT.
But on the bright side, the Georgetown campus is very nice.
