No. 10 Georgetown Vs. Providence: Hoyas' Defense Dominates In 63-53 Win

Georgetown's defense shut down Providence for a 63-53 win.

Georgetown took an 11-point halftime lead over Providence and clamped down on defense en route to a 63-53 win over the Friars on Saturday.

The Hoyas held Providence to a pitiful 25.9 percent from the field on the night, and the Friars got just 32 points from 14 field goals, making just four shots in a 20-point first half. Three Georgetown starters scored in double figures, and Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark both had 13 points to lead the Hoyas. Henry Sims added 10 points, seven rebounds, five assists, and two blocks.

Providence's Vincent Council had 13 points, and Bryce Cotton added nine, but each player had more shots than points: Council went 4-for-14 from the field, and Cotton made three of his 13 threes and none of his four two-pointers. The only Providence player to make more than half of his shots was Ron Giplaye, who made three of four — on two dunks and a tip-in.
