Hoyas Don’t Make It Happen at Home

WASHINGTON – It was a tale of two halves once again as the Georgetown men’s basketball team could not hold off a second-half surge from their opponents, falling 71-58 to the visiting Providence College Friars on Tuesday night. With the setback at Capital One Arena, the Hoyas slip to 9-21 on the year and 2-17 in BIG EAST Conference play while the Friars improve to 19-11 on the year and 10-9 in league action.

ON THE RECORD

“I want to make sure I give due credit to our fans this year … We did not have the home record we wanted to, but I do appreciate how the fans showed up and supported our guys through a really, really difficult season. Our guys fought today. I thought our defensive plan was a little bit better than last game, but a little disappointed in our attention to detail. Providence has a special player and [Devin Carter] can impact the game on both ends of the floor. He will get my vote for Player of the Year, I think he has single handedly carried them to a tournament bid, I definitely think they’re a tournament team. Our attention to detail came back and bit us in the tail, but I’m proud of our guys, we played hard. This is the end of the year and I thought both teams were pretty tired, both teams looked a little fatigued. But again, I thought they had the best player on the floor.” – Head Coach Ed Cooley
