Georgetown Vs. Syracuse: Young Hoyas Fought Hard Against Experienced Orange

The Georgetown Hoyas went up to the Carrier Dome to face one of the best teams in the country on Wednesday and when it was all said and done, they nearly eked out a win. But despite arguably outplaying the Syracuse Orange for much of the contest, the Orange made enough experienced plays to fight them off in overtime. Our Georgetown blog Casual Hoya is bummed about the way it went down, but sees the good in a loss like this.

This is a loss that will make this Georgetown team hungrier. For a young team, this kind of loss will build confidence. We went toe-to-toe with one of the three best teams in their country on their home floor and had the game ripped from us. I can honestly say that tonight Georgetown was the better team, but Syracuse executed better.

Georgetown might be highly ranked, but this was a hard game to expect them to win. Syracuse was ranked higher, they had home court and they were the more experienced club. It would have been a pretty big upset if the Hoyas were able to pull out a win, but the loss can still be a learning experience.

Georgetown Vs. Syracuse Final Score: Hoyas Go Down In Overtime, 64-61

Kris Joseph's three-pointer with 30 seconds remaining in overtime broke a 61-61 tie as No. 2 Syracuse defeated No. 12 Georgetown 64-61 in a thrilling game at the Carrier Dome Wednesday night.

The Georgetown Hoyas held a slight lead over the Syracuse Orange 31-27 at halftime, but couldn't close the deal in the second half. The Orange started the second half with an 8-0 run and took the lead over the Hoyas, but never led by more than six points as the teams once again began trading blows back and forth. The Orange took a 54-48 lead on another Joseph three with 4:39 remaining. The Hoyas were able to tie the game up at 55-55 with one minute to go and Syracuse couldn't get a good shot off in the final seconds as the game went into overtime.

Overtime saw three ties and three lead changes, but Joseph's three made the difference. Georgetown had one final possession in overtime to try to tie the game, but Jason Clark turned the ball over out of bounds with four seconds to play.

Joseph led all scorers with 29 points, while both Otto Porter (14 points, 13 rebounds) and Hollis Thompson (10 points, 11 rebounds) recorded double-doubles for the Hoyas. Clark added 12 points for Georgetown, while Fab Melo added 11 for Syracuse.

Georgetown Vs. Syracuse Score Update: Hoyas Lead 31-27 At Halftime

The Georgetown Hoyas came to the Carrier Dome to take on their bitter rivals, the Syracuse Orange. The game went back and forth through much of the first half with the teams trading buckets as the lead bounced back and forth the whole first half. Georgetown took a five point lead at one point, but 'Cuse battled back to tie the game and take the lead before a Hollis Thompson three-pointer gave the Hoyas back the lead.

The Hoyas were able to maintain that lead until halftime, leading 31-27, and significantly out rebounded Syracuse in the first half. If Syracuse can start pulling down some rebounds, the Hoyas might sweat a little bit as the Orange have hung right with them.
