Mac McClung with a huge 33-pt night, Terrell Allen steps up with 15

NCAA Basketball: Georgetown at Texas Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Your Georgetown Hoyas came out flying tonight, taking down the Cowboys of Oklahoma State by a score of 81-74. The team put together a largely consistent and cohesive performance, after a tumultuous week of transfers and media attention of the variety that no organization ever wants.

Mac McClung was shying away from no shot, ultimately tallying 33 points on 12-21 shooting, including 50% from 3-point range. Graduate transfer Terrell Allen stepped up in the PG role, keeping the offense set and contributing 15 points of his own. Omer Yurtseven struggled from close range at times, but still finished the evening with 19 points and 9 rebounds. Jagan Mosely also got the starting nod, providing some senior leadership, along with 5 rebounds, two assists, and a pair of steals.

Playing for the first time since the announcement that James Akinjo and Josh LeBlanc had entered the transfer portal, and with the news that multiple players were under investigation for a variety of alleged offenses, it was unclear what type of performance the remaining active Georgetown players would be able to muster for Coach Patrick Ewing. The answer? A solid one.

The Hoyas got arguably their best win of the season, on the road, and the 9-man rotation looks solid ahead of Saturday’s game at SMU.

Additional coverage to follow tomorrow.
