Top 25: No. 16 Georgetown 81, American U. 55
< Previous Page
It was part of a change in strategy that resulted in Georgetown scoring 36 points in the paint in the second half, after getting only six that way before halftime.
Suddenly, Georgetown was ahead 48-35 with about 14½ minutes remaining, and the outcome was never again in any doubt.
"I think we may have worn them down a little bit," John Thompson said, "which was good."
