Georgetown Hates The Environment, Demolishes Tulane Green Wave 69-53

A solid early season victory for the Georgetown Hoyas, who won their fifth consecutive home opener in the John Thompson III era, soundly defeating Tulane 69-53.  Austin Freeman led the Hoyas with 23 points on 9-15 shooting.  Jason Clark had Georgetown's most complete performance again, notching 17 points and 11 rebounds for his first career double double.  Vee Sanford came off the bench and scored 10 points in his first action of the season.

The Hoyas shot 50% from the field and knocked in 12 three pointers throughout the game.  Julian Vaughn, Georgetown's starting center, did not play because of illness.  Vaughn spent the night in the hospital last night and was not cleared to play before the Hoyas took the floor.  It is unclear what Vaughn came down with, we will continue to follow the story.  Henry Sims started in Vaughn's place and played his most complete game in a Georgetown uniform.  He scored only 2 points, but had 4 assists and 7 rebounds, giving the Hoyas an inside presence. 

Ryan Dougherty was able to achieve his first Trillion of the year, while Aaron Bowen and John Caprio narrowly avoided their own because of free throw attempts.

Georgetown still needs to be more careful with the ball, as they committed another 10+ turnovers tonight against the Green Wave. 

Next up for the Hoyas is Coastal Carolina on Thursday in the opening game of the Charleston Classic.
