Georgetown puts a thumpin’ on the Syracuse Orangemen.. Ranked as the 17th team in the nation, you really couldn’t tell as the Orange were ran out the gym by a score of 39 to 61 by the 5th ranked Hoyas.
Georgetown controlled the tempo, the ball and the boards on the defensive end. However with only a half-time score of 25 to 18 it wasn’t totally clear they were going to runaway with it completely as they did but that’s why they play the games. The Hoyas controlled offense and strength on the inside created problems all day as the Orange shot 1-11 from the 3 point line and 15 for 47 from the field making it an especially hard against a tough-nosed defensive minded team.
