Men's Basketball Falls at Georgetown 76-56

Game Statistics

WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) - Boubacar Aw scored 19 points and Shernard Long added 16 as Georgetown halted a season-high three-game losing streak by beating Notre Dame 76-56 in a Big East game Saturday afternoon.

Trez Kilpatrick scored 10 of his 13 points in the second half as the Hoyas (12-9, 5-8) beat Notre Dame for the fourth straight time.

The Irish (11-9, 5-7) have lost two in a row and dropped four Big East road games. Notre Dame's point total was its second lowest of the season and its worst in a conference game.

Pat Garrity led the Irish with 15 points. Antoni Wyche added 10 points.

Georgetown point guard Kenny Brunner, the Big East's assist leader, missed his second straight game for personal reasons.

Hoyas coach John Thompson said Brunner, who had been receiving counseling for a problem not related to the team or academics, has left the campus.

The Hoyas held Notre Dame, which connected on only nine of 27 first-half shots, to one field goal in the game's first seven minutes and used a 7-0 run over a 1:59 span to jump out to a 15-3 lead.

Garrity scored the final six points during the 12-2 burst that followed, his long shot from just inside the 3-point arc bringing the Irish within 17-16 with 8:37 remaining in the half.

Dean Barry and Daymond Jackson each had four points in the final seven minutes of the half, helping Georgetown to a 32-23 lead at the break.

In the opening 6:33 of the second half, the Hoyas clamped down defensively, turning four steals and a blocked shot into 12 points and a 44-33 advantage.

Georgetown, which had dropped six of nine games, led by as many as 23 points when Aw hit a fallaway jumper with 1:03 remaining in the game.
