Georgetown Lady Hoyas Defeat Marist, Advance to Round of 32

New, 6 comments

Monica McNutt scored 14 points and Latia McGee added 11 as the 5th seeded Georgetown Lady Hoyas defeated the 12th seeded Marist Red Foxes (great name) in Georgetown's 1st appearance in the Women's NCAA Tournament in 17 years.  The Lady Hoyas turned a narrow 2 point lead at halftime into a comfortable 15 point margin by scoring the first 13 points of the 2nd half.  The win improves the Lady Hoyas to 1-0 in the NCAA Tournament.  The men finished 0-1.

I'm not going to pretend I know the first thing about the Lady Hoyas, but I am finding that writing about the Lady Hoyas is helping me get over the national embarrassment that occurred a few days ago.  The Lady Hoyas will next face 4th seeded Baylor on Monday.  I may name my daughter Sugar Rodgers Casualhoya if we win the National Championship.
