The BIG EAST Recap: 'Georgetown is now Duke' Edition

Since when did the Hoyas become a soft team that jacks 3's all game? Probably since they failed to have an elite big man to faciliate John Thompson III's offense. Now it's just Chris Wright, Jason Clark and Austin Freeman passing amongst themselves until one decides it's time to shoot (probably Wright from my experience watching him play).

Sure, you may be happy now, but trust me. When you get to playing the real teams, you'll be in trouble. Kind of like when we took Duke out behind the shed a couple of years ago.

On to the games...and thank you to the South Florida Bulls for ruining our possibly perfect night. Awesome work guys.

UCF 65, South Florida 59
A.J. Rompza and Isaac Sosa each scored 13 points as UCF stayed unbeaten under their first-year head coach Donnie Jones. It was the 4th largest crowd in UCF history.

Providence Friars 77, Morgan St. 55
Marshon Brook was the star as the Friars stayed unbeaten against the Morgan St. Bears. Brooks had 22 points and 12 rebounds for the double-double.

West Virginia Mountaineers 84, Davidson 70
West Virginia used 22 points from Daryl Bryant and some poor shooting from the Davidson Wildcats, who went 2-22 from beyond the arc (missing their first 19 before making 1!) to snatch the win in Puerto Rico.

No. 4 Pittsburgh holds off Maryland's late run
All 5 starters from the Pittsburgh Panthers reached double digits in scoring and freshman Talib Zanna had a double-double as Pitt knocked off the Maryland Terrapins 79-70.

No. 21 Georgetown takes it outside in 80-61 win
After using a 3-point barrage to beat Tulane, the Georgetown Hoyas went back to the long-ball (14 of them) to beat the Coastal Carolina behind Jason Clark and his 22 points.
