Texas El Paso Scores 10 Points in First Half of Loss to Georgetown

March 24, 1993|From Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Maybe if the Georgetown Hoyas played all their games on campus, they would be in the NCAA tournament, not the NIT.

The Hoyas (18-12) used tiny McDonough Gymnasium for preseason tuneups against pushovers, and Texas El Paso played that role perfectly Tuesday as Georgetown grabbed a 71-44 victory in front of 2,249.

The Hoyas jumped to a 23-4 start, led at halftime, 38-10, and by as much as 52-13.

Joey Brown led Georgetown with 16 points, and center Othella Harrington added 15 for the Hoyas, who play Thursday against Miami of Ohio at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. Ralph Davis had 22 points for UTEP (21-13).
