WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's basketball squad survived a scare Friday evening at McDonough Arena as the No. 13 Hoyas overcame a 10-point deficit to defeat the La Salle University Explorers (1-3), 50-46, at McDonough Arena. Georgetown is now 3-0 heading into the three-game Paradise Jam next week in the U.S. Virgin Islands.
"We came out very lackadaisical in the first half and it showed," said Georgetown Head Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy. "We didn't play defense and had a lot of turnovers. We played better in the second half but overall it wasn't a good performance."
The Hoyas trailed by 10 at the half after dismal 21.4 percent shooting as well as 11 turnovers. The Explorers went to the paint and drew fouls early to take a nine-point lead eight minutes in. Georgetown struggled from the field and couldn't get back into the game to trail 28-18 at the break.
Moving to half-court pressure in the second, the Blue & Gray opened the second with a 15-0 run fueled by five points from Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork). Georgetown led by as much as seven with 8:46 remaining, but the Explorers came back to cut the lead to two on a three by Ashley Gale at 4:45.
Despite the surging Explorers, the Hoyas managed to hold on with some clutch baskets coming from junior Alexa Roche (Bellmore, N.Y./St. Michael's Academy) late and get the 50-46 victory.
Rodgers and senior Monica McNutt (Suitland, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross) both had 10 points and junior Tommacina McBride (Cincinnati, Ohio/Mount Notre Dame) added eight rebounds. Georgetown shot 35.4 percent and outrebounded La Salle, 40-38.
The Blue & Gray will travel to the U.S. Virgin Islands next week for a three-team tournament. Georgetown will open play with Georgia Tech on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET. There will be a live stream available through GUHoyas.com.
