Georgetown women strike a balance on offense
Georgetown has found its shooter, or more appropriately, its “shooters.”
Coach Teri Williams-Flournoys squad was on fire Sunday in a 69-42 rout of Syracuse.
The 18th-ranked Hoyas improved to a 14-4, 3-2 in the Big East.
“We know how tough the Big East is,” senior guard Rubylee Wright said. “We’ve got to take advantage of games like this while we’re at home.”
Determined to come out strong, Wright received a pass from Crawford to put the Hoyas ahead 2-0 in the first minute.
Georgetown was 4-for-6 from the field in the first five minutes, and Syracuse (12-7, 1-4) was 0-for-8.
Georgetown knew it needed to establish the lead early.
“We emphasized in those first four minutes: score and defend,” said Williams-Flournoy. “[Today] they did a good job right away.”
Having shot just 27.8 percent against Notre Dame, the Hoyas appeared to be a different team as they connected at a 58 percent clip in the first half Sunday.
“They shot out of their minds today,” Syracuse coach Quentin Hillsman said.
Georgetown benefited from Syracuse’s inability to guard the ball.
“You cant throw the ball away 30 times and expect to win the basketball game,” Hillsman said.
“The thing is,” Magee, “Sugar could have got more shots, but she believes in her teammates, and that alone helped us pull it all together.”
Williams-Flournoy had said that she looking for a shooter, and Sunday the Hoyas stepped up.
“We can do it by committee,” Williams-Flournoy said. “On any given night, whoevers hot. Lets go.”
