Streaky Hoyas put away Terriers | The Post and Courier, Charleston SC - News, Sports, Entertainment
"They're really good, a little better than I thought they'd be," said Terriers' coach Mike Young, whose team fell to 1-3. "When you dig a 9-0 hole against a Big East team, that's a big climb," Georgetown continued to build on its lead and was ahead, 37-24, when senior guard Chris Wright hit a 3-pointer to close the first half for the Hoyas' biggest lead. Wofford hit only three of its first 20 field-goal attempts in the first half.

Poise, poise, poise and more poise is what Georgetown basketball is all about. Before the game, an assistant coach told me the key to the Hoyas' success is the continued development of their low-post players. Well, the first half of Friday's semifinal was dictated by the defensive efforts of Julian Vaughn. His first-half stat line was six points, seven boards and four blocks.

"I don't think I had the hot hand," Wright said. "It's going to be rare nights when I'm going to be the leading scorer because I'm trying to do so much other stuff."

Coming off two wins fueled by their outside shooting, the Hoyas did most of their work in the paint and at the free-throw line. Senior forward Julian Vaughn had his second straight standout performance and first double-double with 12 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks, while junior center Henry Sims played strongly coming off the bench, chipping in six points and five boards. Against the undersized Terriers, Georgetown dominated the glass to the tune of 32-16.
