Georgetown Vs. Alabama Score Update: Hoya Defense Clamps Down On Crimson Tide For 23-16 Halftime Lead

After the first half of their 2011 Big East/SEC Challenge game, the Georgetown Hoyas lead the Alabama Crimson Tide 23-16. Georgetown spent much of the half in zone, and Bama put up a bagel from three point range, going 0 for 9 from downtown. Jason Clark, who put up a bagel himself from behind the arc on Monday night against IUPUI, led the Hoyas with 12 points in the first half. Clark went on a personal 5 point run to give Georgetown a cushion and take the home crowd out of the game. In addition to Clark, the Hoyas looked to Henry Sims early on offense and he provided a quick six points. Hollis Thompson, who was held scoreless, will need to contribute on offense in the second half.

Alabama, ranked 12th and featuring offensive star power, shot just 32% from the floor. JaMychal Green had only four points in the first, as the Hoya frontcourt limited Bama's offensive rebounds and second chance opportunities. Georgetown hopes to keep up the defensive pressure and get out of Tuscaloosa with an upset win, and a likely top 25 ranking come Monday.
