In what seems like a lifetime ago, Jack, Sophia, Sharon and I saw Georgetown play De Paul during Senior Parent Weekend last February. With Georgetown winning the Big East Tournament, making the NCAA Basketball Touranment for the first time since 2015 and snapping the program's longest tournament drought in the modern era, I decided to watch their first round NCAA Tournament Basketball game against Colorado. Georgetown was a twelve seed, while Colorado was seeded fifth in the East Region.
Missing free throws and three pointers (1 for 11), Georgetown fell behind 47 to 23 at halftime. Colorado won the game by the score of 96 to 73.
As a team, Colorado was 16 for 25 (64%) from three! Their leading scorer was Jabari Walker. He had 24 points on 9 for 10 from the field, 1 for 1 from the free throw line and 5 for 5 from three. D'Shawn Schwartz contributed 18 points. He was 6 for 8 from the field, 1 for 2 from the free throw line and 5 for 7 from three.
Qudus Wahab was Georgetown's leading scorer. He had 20 points on 7 for 12 from the field and 6 for 9 from the free throw line. Wahab also had 12 rebounds.
