Hoyas and Wizards fans look to the future

Wednesday night, 13, 241 fans were in attendance for the 9 p.m. Georgetown Hoyas-Cincinnati Bearcats game at the Verizon Center. With the score tied at 26 at the half, the Hoyas fell at home, 58-46. Austin Freeman led the Hoyas with 19 points. The Hoyas only shot 25 percent from the field during the game. Cincinnati shot 42 percent. During the game, Georgetown senior Chris Wright broke his hand. He had surgery Thursday morning.

Georgetown coach John Thompson III said that after Wright left the game, “I think we were out of sync. I don’t know that our intensity was down. I just thought we were out of sync. I thought we went through a phase where we started feeling sorry for ourselves, which we don’t need to do. We were just not in sync today.”

Georgetown’s final home game this season comes Saturday, Feb. 26, 12 noon, as the Hoyas welcome the Syracuse Orange to the Verizon Center. This game will be nationally televised on CBS.

The NBA trade deadline came and went Thursday.  As the Washington Wizards suffered a 117-94 road loss at Philadelphia Wednesday night, the team was in the middle of a five-player deal. The Wizards acquired veteran Mike Bibby, Maurice Evans, Jordan Crawford and a 2011 first-round draft pick from the Atlanta Hawks. The Wizards sent Kirk Hinrich and Anthony Armstrong to Atlanta. Next up, the Wizards try to get road win number two on the season as the team travels to take on the Miami Heat on Friday with a 7:30 tip-off. Game can be seen on ComcastSportsNet.
