West Virginia Vs. Georgetown: Hoyas Trail 29-25 At Halftime

Neither team played particularly well in the first half at the Verizon Center this morning. Maybe the players haven't had their coffee yet either.

Mistakes and missed shots highlighted a good portion of the first half. Georgetown's two biggest stars combined for only two points in the first 20 minutes. Austin Freeman went 0-2 shooting, while Chris Wright was 1-5.

Both teams did start to wake up later in the half though. First the Hoyas went on a 12-2 run to take a lead midway through the period, but then the Mountaineers closed out the half with a 16-6 run to finish with a four point lead.

This is a huge half of basketball coming up for the Hoyas. A loss at home to start 1-3 in the Big East would be devastating for the Hoyas. There's plenty of time left in the season, and the Big East is an excellent conference so a team could quite realistically make the NCAA tournament with a losing record in 2011, but a win at the Verizon Center would be mighty nice.
