The Cincinnati Bearcats improved to 22-6, 9-6 in the Big East by working over the Georgetown Hoyas tonight. The Bearcats had the Hoya offense off balance all night, using a zone defense and just pure hard effort. The Bearcats held Georgetown to 12-48 shooting from the field. Twelve of forty eight. The Bearcats were powered by a man effort from Yancy Gates. The big man threw up a 17-12 double double. He was helped by Dion Dixon, who had 17 off the bench, and Rashad Bishop, who had 12. Bishop hit the dagger, a 3 with the shot clock running out after Georgetown closed the lead to 8 at the under 4 timeout.
This was a great win. 4th win over the RPI top 25. The second big road win of the season. Not only was it that, it was a complete domination the second half. Whatever will the Bearcats didn’t drain out of the Hoyas, the rest went away when point guard Chris Wright injured his hand or wrist early in the second half. He tried to come back, but had to leave again. I hope he’s ok.
I think this might be enough to go dancing. I love this team. What do you think Kenyon Martin?
