The Georgetown Hoyas got off to a rough start, but fixed things quickly and are tied 26-26 with the Cincinnati Bearcats at halftime.
Austin Freeman has 15 of Georgetown's 26 points. Nate Lubick, Jason Clark, Julian Vaughn and Chris Wright combined the rest. Rashad Bishoo has six points for the Bearcats.
Cincinnati got off to a 19-8 start midway through the half, but a 18-7 run to close out the first 20 minutes brought Georgetown back into the game.
The Hoyas clawed back despite making only eight field goals in 24 shots. Seven free throws, however, kept the Hoyas in the game. The Bearcats did not attempt a free throw in the first half.
