Bryce Cotton did about all he could tonight with 19 points in the last 7 minutes of the first half to give PC a 6 point halftime lead. It seemed like everyone else was doing their best to give this game to Georgetown, including the referees at times. I haven’t seen that many uncalled travels not in an NBA game in I don’t know how long. Henton was largely absent from the offensive end and Batts, while playing well in spurts after sitting the majority of the first half with foul trouble, missed some easy shots near the hoop. That was a similar story for Desrosiers.
In a game the Friars absolutely needed to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive, everyone not named Cotton really didn’t show up. Cotton finished with a game high 31 points and only two other Friars finished in double figures (Batts 14, Harris 13). PC will likely have to do something wild to get into the Big Dance at this point (i.e. beat Villanova at the Dunk and Creighton in Omaha).
