Cincinnati Vs. Georgetown Score Update: Hollis Thompson Perfect From Three-Point Range As Hoyas Lead Bearcats By Two At Halftime

Looking to start a new streak, the Georgetown Hoyas lead the Cincinnati Bearcats by two points after one half at the Verizon Center. It was a slow and plodding first half, with both teams picking up the pace over the final ten minutes to break the thirty point mark. Hollis Thompson led the Hoyas with 14 points, going a perfect four for four from behind the arc. Thompson hit a fadeaway three from 28 feet off the back of the window to give Georgetown the two-point lead as time expired.

Led by Thompson, the Hoyas production from behind the arc kept them even with Cincinnati as they continued to give it away on the offensive end, uncharacteristically committing nine turnovers. Jason Clark was perfect from the floor as well, hitting three of three attempts. He completed an old-fashioned three-point play in the final minute of the half and finished with seven points.

The No.11-ranked Hoyas will look to maintain their lead in the second half and start a new winning streak in conference play.
