Georgetown celebrated their 100th Anniversary of basketball with a win over Marquette
By Frank J. Matthews
The Georgetown University Men’s basketball program won one of their biggest games of the season on Saturday by knocking off 12th ranked Marquette University 76 – 58. What made the victory even more special was that Georgetown honored their best players from the past 100 years at halftime. Patrick Ewing received a thunderous ovation as he was called out to center court to join the other honorees.
Georgetown’s Roy Hibbert stepped his game up and had 23 points and 11 rebounds. That combined with Jeff Green’s 24 points proved to be to much for the Golden Eagles to handle. This was Georgetown‘s seventh straight win and improves their record to 8 –2 in the Big East which means they are almost a lock for NCAA National Tournament.
After the game in the media room John Thompson III joked with the press about the win saying “ It makes the event were having tonight a lot easier to show up to.”
