End of a tough season comes in tough loss, unsurprisingly

The Georgetown Hoyas finished their season on Thursday morning with yet another tough loss, losing to the Seton Hall Pirates, 53-57, in the BIG EAST Tournament. This was the Hoyas’ 21st straight loss. They could not repeat their conference tournament success from one year ago.

The Hoyas battled until the end, with a renewed physical, defensive presence, but it wasn’t enough down the stretch. The loss of Dante Harris at the point, due to ankle injury, led to some shot-clock violations, ill-advised shots, and poor turnovers in the second half. Still, the Blue and Gray pushed onward. Tyler Beard played solid, Tim Ighoefe had some great rebounds and blocks. Kobe Clark and Jalin Billingsley had some energetic minutes off the bench.

Scoring was tough on each side of the floor. Don Carey’s 11 points (4-12 FGs) were not enough, even with Aminu Mohammed’s 11 points (4-8 FGs), with 10 rebounds, and Collin Holloway’s 12 points (4-15 FGs). Seton Hall was only 22-57 (38.6%) from the field and 8-23 (34.8%) from three for the game, but the buckets came when it was important.

Now, Hoyas fans wait and see what’s to come with the off-season.
