Georgetown Vs. Belmont Halftime Score: Hoyas Shooting Well, Lead 36-27

The Belmont Bruins have been a common upset pick for people looking for upset picks, but the Georgetown Hoyas have shown off their superiority in the first half. Belmont haven't been outclassed by any means, but the Hoyas are hitting shots at a consistent clip and playing very good defense. At halftime, they're up 36-27.

Belmont are 6-15 from three-point range, and it will be concerning for them that they're down by nine points while shooting 40 percent from distance. They don't have much of an answer for Georgetown as a whole, which is surprising considering how average Henry Sims and Hollis Thompson have been. They're shooting 54 percent as a team even though those two players have combined to go 2-10. Jason Clark leads Georgetown with an impressive 13 points on 5-7 shooting.
