Nov. 25, 2010
ST. THOMAS, Virgin Islands (AP) -The Georgetown women's basketball team (4-0) had a lot to celebrate this Thanksgiving. The No. 12 Hoyas defeated the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (3-3), 67-58, in the first game of the Paradise Jam held at the University of the Virgin Islands. Senior Monica McNutt (Suitland, Md./Academy of the Holy Cross) led the way with 24 points and six rebounds. Additionally, Thursday's victory marked the 100th in Head Coach Terri Williams-Flournoy's career.
Georgetown trailed by one at the break, but McNutt came alive in the second half scoring 17 points to give the Blue & Gray the edge.
The Hoyas led by four with seven minutes remaining when McNutt took over. The senior shooting guard scored 11-consecutive points including three treys to stage an 11-4 run on her own and give GU the 63-52 advantage.
That would be the dagger as free throws down the stretch helped the Hoyas to the 67-58 win.
The Blue & Gray looked solid in the first half, but never managed to get a large lead allowing the Yellow Jackets to stick around. Georgia Tech went up by as much as five in the first thanks to hot-handed Alex Montgomery who sank four three's.
A jumper from McNutt at 11:41 in the first put the Hoyas ahead by seven. However, this would be short lived as Georgia Tech came right back to tie it and eventually take the lead thanks to Montgomery. GT went up by five, but free throws from Rubylee Wright (Latta, S.C./Latta) and Sugar Rodgers (Suffolk, Va./King's Fork) made it 39-38 at the half.
McNutt led all scorers with 24 points including five three's as well as six boards and three steals. Rodgers added 11 points, while junior Adria Crawford (Alexandria, Va./Thomas Edison) had seven points and six rebounds including a 5-of-6 performance from the line.
Georgetown shot 42.9 percent while holding the Yellow Jackets to 37 percent shooting. GU forced 22 turnovers in the contest.
Williams-Flournoy is now only the second coach in program history to earn 100 career wins. She is in her seventh year on the Hilltop and has led the Blue & Gray to a pair of postseasons as well as two 20-win seasons. All 100 wins came as the head coach at Georgetown.
The Blue & Gray will be back in action tomorrow evening as the squad faces Missouri at 5:45 p.m. ET. Live stats and a webcast will be available at www.GUHoyas.com.
