Cincinnati 72, Georgetown 70 in double overtime

In the thrilling game between the Georgetown Hoyas and the Cincinnati Bearcats. The game carried into a second overtime, until the Bearcats pulled out a victory against a highly respected Georgetown team. The Bearcats will face Syracuse tomorrow at 7pm ET.

The Bearcats were down by 11 points 10 minutes through the second half but rallied behind Yancy Gates, who scored 23 points and was the key man for the win. I don’t think they’ll upset Syracuse, but if they can keep it close, you never know what might happen.

Here’s the box score from the game.
