Hoyas Drop 84-83 Heartbreaker to TCU in BIG EAST/Big 12 Battle

WASHINGTON – Despite trailing by as many as 15 early in the second half, the Georgetown University men’s basketball team clawed its way back and took a two-point lead with two seconds on the clock but a last-second triple gave the TCU Horned Frogs the 84-83 victory at Capital One Arena on Saturday night. With the setback in the BIG EAST/Big 12 Battle, the Hoyas slip to 5-3 while TCU remains unbeaten at 7-0.


“That was a great college basketball game. Obviously, we love the battle… It didn’t fall our way but let me tell you what happened today: our men grew up. I thought we battled. We could have easily packed it in after they went on a 7-0 run and I had to call a timeout. I thought our men grew up. I thought we were resilient. I thought we were calm. I thought we were collected. I thought we were tough… I give my team an A+ on their resilience, an A+ on their character, an A+ on their toughness today… I lost this game for those kids and I want to do a better job the next time we coach … The energy in the building made a major difference today. Little by little, Georgetown will get there. In order to get to the mountaintop you have to fail a little bit first and that’s okay. I am proud of our men. Really, really proud of our men.” – Head Coach Ed Cooley
