Georgetown trailed the worst team in the Big East, South Florida, by nine points late in the first half, but a 12-0 run gave them a lead that the Hoyas would not relinquish as they won a hard-fought 63-53 victory. DuJuan Summers' career-high 24 points led No. 6 Georgetown. The Hoyas improved to 9-1 in conference play, reports the Washington Post.
South Florida’s big man Kentrell Gransberry played the highly-touted Georgetown center Roy Hibbert to a draw; both players scored 13 points and Gransberry had a nine to eight edge on the glass. Even after surrendering the lead South Florida continued to fight, staying within striking distance much of the game, but the Hoyas proved too much in the end for the Bulls.
