Dec. 5, 2006
Washington, D.C. - Georgetown tied a school record with 16 three-pointers and four players scored in double figures en route to an 89-53 win over James Madison in front of 6,837 at Verizon Center Tuesday night.
The win improved the Hoyas record to 5-3 overall as the team ended a two-game losing streak. The Dukes fell to 2-5 this season.
The 36-point win was the widest margin of victory for a Georgetown team since an 83-36 (47 points) win over Grambling State during the 2003-04 season. The team's 16 three-pointers tied the single game record set against Davidson on November 30, 2004. The Hoyas also handed out a season-high 27 assists, seven shy of the school record of 34 set against Shenandoah on December 10, 1988.
The Hoyas held their biggest lead of the season at half time (18 points, 47-29) and continued their hot shooting in the final 20 minutes of the game. After hitting 63.0 percent in the first half, the Blue and Gray shot 53.6 percent (15-of-28) in the second en route to the win.
Georgetown out-scored James Madison 12-5 over the first 6:59 of the second half, increasing its lead to 59-34 on a fast break layup from junior forward Jeff Green (Hyattsville, Md./Northwestern). A three-pointer from sophomore swingman Marc Egerson (Wilmington, Del./Glasgow) with 8:56 to play moved the lead to 32 points, 71-39. The Hoyas took their biggest lead of the night, 88-44 (44 points), on a dunk from junior forward Patrick Ewing, Jr. (Marietta, Ga./National Christian Academy).
The Hoyas took their biggest lead of the season at halftime, connecting on 63.0 percent of their shots (17-of-27) from the field - including a season-high nine three-pointers - to take a 47-29 lead.
James Madison took a 3-2 lead on a three-pointer from Joe Posey in the opening minute of the game, and the Hoyas led by only two points, 9-7, three minutes into the game. The Blue and Gray, however, scored 12-straight points over the next 2:28, taking a 19-7 lead on a layup from sophomore guard Jessie Sapp (New York, N.Y./National Christian Academy). JMU pulled to within nine points, 21-12, on a three-pointer from Terrance Carter, but the Hoyas outscored the Dukes 15-6 over the next 7:13 and took a 36-18 lead on three-pointer from Sapp with 3:52 to play in the half.
Green scored a game-high 17 points to lead Georgetown, adding five assists and four rebounds, while Sapp added 15 points and five assists. Junior guard Jonathan Wallace (Harvest, Ala./Sparkman) added 14 points and five assists, while freshman forward DaJuan Summers (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) added 10 points and three rebounds.
Georgetown plays the second game of a five-game homestand on Saturday, December 9, hosting Oral Roberts at Verizon Center. Tip-off for the game is slated for 1 p.m. and it can be heard locally on Sports Talk 980 AM.
