Georgetown Vs. St. John's Score Update: Hoyas Go On 18-0 Run, Lead Red Storm By Six At Half

Despite shooting 31 percent from the floor, the Georgetown Hoyas lead the St. John's Red Storm 25-19 after one half at Madison Square Garden. The Johnnies played zone for much of the first half and the Hoyas struggled from outside, hitting only two of nine attempts from behind the arc. Georgetown pounded the offensive glass with a big lineup to clean up the missed shots on the glass. Freshman Otto Porter was big off the bench, grabbing seven rebounds and adding six points in relief. Porter grabbed four offensive boards and Greg Whittington grabbed three on the inside of St. John's zone. That work on the glass led to an 18-0 Hoyas run that built up the six point halftime lead.

Jason Clark led the Hoyas with seven points, while Hollis Thompson was 0 for four from long range and has yet to get on the board. St. John's wing player Moe Harkless led the Red Storm with 11 points.

After nearly a week off, the Hoyas are looking to rebound from back-to-back conference losses.
