Louisville Vs. Georgetown Final Score: Chris Wright's Clutch Shooting Powers Hoyas To 62-59 Win

Georgetown Hoyas guard Chris Wright contributed 24 points to his team’s 62-59 win over the Louisville Cardinals, with none of those points bigger than his free throw shooting down the stretch.

Georgetown took a three-point lead with seconds left, giving Rick Pitino the option of going for the tie or taking a two and hoping to get the ball back. Terrence Jennings took the two, leaving 4.4 seconds on the clock as Wright went to the free throw line.

Wright nailed both, the Hoyas opted not to foul Peyton Siva, and Siva’s three-point attempt bounced off the left side of the rim.

The Hoyas bounced back from their horrible shooting in the first half to finish with a respectable 46.8 percent, while Louisville never really recovered. The Cards were able to grab 11 offensive rebounds, though, so at least they got to poorly shoot more often.

Louisville Vs. Georgetown Score: Sluggish Start In Big East Showdown

Tonight’s critical meeting between the Louisville Cardinals and Georgetown Hoyas has produced some — well, let’s call it great defense. Georgetown leads only 22-18 at halftime, and yes that was a regulation, 20-minute first half.

Both teams are shootiing right around 30 percent, with Georgetown’s Jason Clark and Louisville’s Kyle Kuric among the players who’ve shot 0-for-several. Lot of rebounding work out there, for those interesting in grabbing boards. The Hoyas hold a slight edge on the glass, led by Clark’s six.

Georgetown’s Chris Wright and Louisville’s Preston Knowles lead all scorers with eight points each. A combined 18 turnovers have helped to make this one of the ugliest games of the season.

Just so we’re clear, the lowest amount of points Louisville has managed so far this year was 46 in a loss to Drexel. And Georgetown put up only 55 when they lost to Notre Dame.

No. 15 Louisville Vs. No. 13 Georgetown: Big Monday Pairs Big East Contenders

It's safe to say the Georgetown Hoyas and Louisville Cardinals had pretty good weekends. On Saturday they both secured road upsets over top-10 Big East rivals, with the Hoyas beating the Villanova Wildcats 69-66 and the Cards outlasting the Connecticut Huskies 79-78 in double overtime.

Tonight at 7 pm ET we'll find out who can keep the momentum going. Both teams started the year hot before hitting a rough stretch, and this game will go a long way toward deciding if one of them is back on track. This is their first and only meeting in this regular season.

This is the only sixth road game of the season for Rick Pitino's bunch, which clearly likes the school's KFC Yum! Center as much as fast food nation does. They've gone 3-2 away from The Yum.

Your players to watch: Georgetown's Austin Freeman, who scored 29 points in last year's Hoyas win in Kentucky, and Louisville's Payton Siva, whose 19 points and seven assists out-boxscore'd Kemba Walker on Saturday.
