#5 Georgetown beats #13 Pittsburgh

Georgetown took care of business today, beating the Pittsburgh Panthers 64-52. The Hoyas controlled most of the game, and never looked nervous. They will play Cincinnati tomorrow at 2pm ET.

Georgetown’s center, Henry Sims, had a double-double with 20 points and 13 rebounds. And oh yeah, he had 5 assist too. If he isn’t the defensive focal point for Cincy, then I don’t see a way that they will be able to beat Georgetown. But, hey, its the Big East, you never know.

Here’s the box score from the game.
