Thriving with a slimmed-down roster, Georgetown stretches its winning streak to four | WASHINGTONPOST

“To me, [Mosely is] the unsung hero. He’s the glue guy; he’s doing everything,” Ewing said. “He guards the best player on the team on the perimeter. . . . He plays one, two, three, four; the only position he hasn’t played yet is five. I think all these guys are doing an outstanding job, and they’re making me proud.” Georgetown’s defense, too, was more effective against the Retrievers. The Hoyas held UMBC scoreless for the first seven minutes to take a 14-0 lead. The closest the Retrievers came after that was nine points. Ewing said his team was playing the best defense he has seen in his three-year tenure.

But the Hoyas still have plenty left in the cupboard. The Retrievers had few answers for limiting the trio of 7-foot, 264-pound senior center Omer Yurtseven, 6-foot-8, 206-pound guard/forward Jamorko Pickett and 6-11, 237-pound freshman center Qudus Wahab. Yurtseven led all scorers with 22 points on 11-for-14 shooting, collected a game-high 13 rebounds, and blocked three shots. He had a double-double in the first half with 12 points on 6-for-8 shooting and 10 rebounds, including four offensive boards.

Pickett finished with 12 points and three rebounds before injuring his left calf and sitting out the remaining 11:52, and Wahab had 10 points, nine rebounds and three blocks, probably altering a few more. “I think my guys have definitely stepped up with all of the distractions,” Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing said. “They have been resilient. They have been concentrating on what they need to concentrate on, they’ve been doing their schoolwork, and they’ve been playing extremely well.”
