Victories for Hoyas, Colonials and Wizards

The Georgetown Hoyas are rolling and are on an eight-game winning streak. After the win Sunday at the Verizon Center over the Marqutte Golden Eagles, the Hoyas are now 9-4 in Big East Play. After being down 35-31 at halftime, G’town had a much better second half and defeated Marqutte 69-60. YDC asked John Thompson III if he thought this game was a trap game in the Big East, “This was not a trap game, every team in the Big East is a good game.” he replied.
Austin Freeman who had 17 points on the afternoon left the game before the first half ended and came back late into second half due to an injury. Asked how he felt, Freeman said, “I got on the floor and somebody landed on my ankle. It rolled. I was just trying to get up and see if I can walk on it. I was in pain, but I played through it. It didn’t hurt as much while I was playing. I’m good. I told the trainer that I was going to play anyways so I just told her to tape me up and I just went back out there.”
Next up the Hoyas travel to face the UConn Huskies at 7:00 p.m. on MASN.

After the 69-65 loss against Richmond on Wednesday at the Charles E. Smith Center, the George Washington Colonials defeated Massachusetts Minutemen, 59-51 at the Mullins Center in Amherst, Mass. Nemanja Mikic lead the Colonials with 20 points. GW now travels to Philadelphia to face La Salle Saturday Feb. 19. at 7:00 p.m.
