WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball team came back from a 14-point deficit, but it was not quite enough as the squad fell, 51-48, to the Marquette University Golden Eagles (14-14, 6-9 BIG EAST) Saturday afternoon at McDonough Arena. Prior to the game, the program honored the five members of the senior class which included two managers and three student-athletes. Georgetown is now 14-14 overall and 5-10 in BIG EAST Conference play with one game remaining in the regular season.
"We were able to hold them in the second half, but it comes down to execution down the stretch," said Georgetown Head Coach Keith Brown. "We have to be able to knock down shots when it matters. We had a chance to cut the lead, but inconsistency has left us stranded in the last few games and we need to work on that."
Looking at an 11-point deficit with 14 minutes remaining in the game, Georgetown staged an 11-2 run to cut the lead to one, 45-44, on four points from senior shooting guard Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) as well as four by junior forward Andrea White (Lancaster, Va./Lancaster). The Golden Eagles had just two points in 10 minutes as the Blue & Gray battled to get back into the game.
With four minutes remaining, Marquette hit two quick shots to make it a two possession game. White answered with a jumper and Rodgers added a layup, but the Hoyas were forced to foul and the Golden Eagles sunk free throws to hold on. With one final play, the shot went off the rim as GU fell, 51-48.
Georgetown led by one early, but the Golden Eagles used an 11-0 run to take the 14-4 lead at 13:26 as the Hoyas struggled to keep possession. The Blue & Gray cut it to five on a hot hand from Rodgers, but Marquette managed to once again move ahead by double figures going up by as much as 14 at 5:18.
A layup late in the first by Rodgers made it 35-26 at the break.
Rodgers led all scorers with 21 points and also had four boards as well as four assists and three steals. White added 12 points and nine rebounds along with three steals.
The Hoyas outrebounded the Golden Eagles, 36-29, and shot 37.3 percent for the game while holding Marquette to 36.7 percent from the field.
Sarina Simmons led Marquette with 16 points, while Arlesia Morse added 15.
Georgetown will close out the regular season on Monday evening as the squad hosts the University of South Florida Bulls at 8 p.m., at McDonough Arena. Live stats and a webcast featuring Ryan Sakamoto and Monica McNutt will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
