DePaul had no answer for the Hoyas' 7-2 sophomore center Roy Hibbert. Hibbert contributed 13 points in the first half and finished with 17 points to lead all scorers and snatched 8 rebounds in just 25 minutes of play. Many NBA Scouts in attendance were intrigued with Hibbert's play.
Georgetown had three players finish in double figures with Jeff Green contributing 15 points and Brandon Bowman adding 10.
The Hoyas big front line dominated the boards holding a 25 to 10 rebounding advantage at halftime. The game ended with Georgetown grabbing 38 rebounds to DePaul's 25. "We got beat up a little bit on the glass because we got spread out a little," said DePaul coach Jerry Wainwright. "They're quick to the glass."
Starting for DePaul tonight were Marlon Brumfield, Cliff Clinkscales, Wilson Chandler, Marcus Heard, and Jabari Currie. Sammy Mejia, who suffered a sprained ankle versus Marquette, came off the bench and was limited to five points on two of seven shooting. "He was certainly out of sync," said Wainwright. "But showed a lot of courage in playing. You could tell he was laboring. We'll just have to see where he is at over the next couple of days." Draelon Burns led the way for DePaul chipping in 12 points after coming in off the bench.
The 18-2 start to the game by Georgetown signified a trend of where DePaul has got into a hole early.
DePaul fell to an 8-11 record overall and has now lost six straight. It is the longest losing streak for the Blue Demons since February 12th to March 1st of 2002.
