In case you missed it on Saturday, after a 3-week hiatus, the Georgetown Hoyas overcame a 15-point deficit for a 73-72 win over the Providence Friars in a BIG EAST Conference matchup at McDonough Arena, led by a 19-point and 9-rebound effort by Chudier Bile off the bench.

As a result, Chudier Bile was named to this week’s BIG EAST Honor Roll.

The BIG EAST issued a press release, saying:

Chudier Bile, Georgetown, F [] – Posted team highs of 19 points and nine rebounds and hit a free throw with five seconds left in a one-point victory over Providence (73-72).

Bile led the Hoyas with a season-high 19 points, including shooting 10-12 from the charity stripe. Bile also grabbed a game-best 9 rebounds.

Pairing a little more patience with his widely acknowledged hustle, Hoyas fans have been pleased with Bile’s recent growth to play within himself and the team. This week, the honor is well deserved.

In the post-game press conference, the graduate transfer from Northwestern State spoke of his role in the win:

“It feels good. I am happy that we got the win … I feel that I am starting to get more comfortable with the system and knowing where I am going to attack and get my shots. It felt good to get this win for sure, to get back on the winning side.”

Patrick Ewing spoke about his post-game conversation with Bile, saying “He’s that type of athlete” and relaying that he told the forward, “This is what I expected from you when I got you, to do things like this ... Hopefully this won’t be the first or last time I see this out of you.”
