Georgetown Returns Home to Face Howard on Sunday at Verizon Center

Nov. 26, 2016

WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men’s basketball team is back in action on Sunday, Nov. 27, hosting local rival Howard at Verizon Center. Tipoff is slated for 1:30 p.m.

The game will be shown live on FS1, with Brian Curtin calling the play-by-play, and Donny Marshall serving as the color analyst. The radio call of Rich Chvotkin can be heard locally on 106.7 FM The Fan.

This is the first of three-straight home games for the Hoyas, who enter the game with a 2-4 record after playing three games at the Maui Invitational in Hawaii, including a 65-61 win over No. 13 Oregon. Georgetown has played two games against teams from the Big 10 Conference and one each against schools from the Big 12 Conference and the Pac-12 Conference through six games this season.

No. 18 Georgetown Pulls Away from Howard, 62-48
No. 18 Georgetown opened up a 17-0 lead in the first half, led by 13 points at the half and saw its lead shrink to two points late in the game, but used a 20-8 run over the final seven minutes en route to a 62-48 win over D.C. rival Howard in front of 8,120 fans at Verizon Center Saturday afternoon.

In the win over Oregon, graduate student Rodney Pryor (Evanston, Ill./Notre Dame Prep/Robert Morris) scored 26 points, grabbed 10 rebounds and had four blocks, his first double-double of the season and the ninth of his career. He is the first Georgetown player to record at least 20 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks in game under Head Coach John Thompson since Greg Monroe in 2010.

Pryor leads the team in scoring with 18.0 points per game and is second on the team with 4.8 rebounds. He has hit a team-best 14 3-pointers and is shooting 53.4% percent from the floor.

Junior guard L.J. Peak (Gaffney, S.C./Gaffney), who had a streak of 20-straight games in double figures ended in a loss to Oklahoma State on Wednesday, is second on the team in scoring with 16.2 points per game, while also averaging 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists.


 

 

Sophomore center Jessie Govan (Queens Village, N.Y./Wings Academy) is third on the team with 9.5 points and third with 4.3 rebounds.

Senior center Bradley Hayes (Jacksonville, Fla./Sandalwood), who missed the first four games of the season after being granted a fifth year of eligibility by the NCAA, is averaging 9.5 points and 8.5 rebounds in two games. In the last three games, junior forward Akoy Agau (Omaha, Neb./Omaha Central) is averaging 5.7 points and 2.7 rebounds.

Howard enters Sunday’s game with an 0-4 record following losses at Michigan, at Marquette and against IUPUI and Gardner Webb. The Bison have been playing without senior guard James Daniel III, the nation’s leading scorer last year with 27 points per game. Junior guard James Miller leads the team in scoring with 13.0 points per game, including a season-high 25 points against Gardner Webb. Senior guard Damon Collins is third on the team with 11.0 points per game, along with a team-best 5.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists. Senior forward Solomon Manghan is second on the team with 11.8 points per game.

With both Georgetown and Howard located in the Nation’s Capital, only the Hoyas boast players that call the District home. Junior guards Tre Campbell and Ra’Mond Hines both hail from D.C. and attended WCAC rivals St. John’s College High School and Gonzaga College High School, respectively. Georgetown and Howard have met seven times on the hardwood in program history, with the Hoyas posting a perfect 7-0 record. The two teams met every year season from 1999-00 to 2004-05 and again in 2011-12. Sunday’s meeting is the earliest that Georgetown and Howard have faced each other in season. All seven previous games between the crosstown foes had taken place in December. The Hoyas have found success against their fellow schools located in Washington, D.C. Georgetown is a combined 134-48 against American, Catholic, UDC, Gallaudet, George Washington and Howard in program history.
