Jones, Bryant power West Virginia to upset over No. 9 Georgetown

PSR Logo
Truck Bryant scored 25 points and Kevin Jones continued his dominant season with 22 points and 16 rebounds as West Virginia upset No. 9 Georgetown 74-62 on Saturday.

The Mountaineers (12-4, 3-1 Big East) beat the Hoyas for the fifth straight time and also ended Georgetown's 11-game winning streak.

Jones and Bryant—who has reached 25 points in three of his last four games—combined for 21 of West Virginia's 29 first-half points. Jones recorded his 11th double-double of the season for the Mountaineers, who led 29-27 at halftime.

The Mountaineers' offense was clicking on all cylinders, shooting 50 percent (24 of 48) from the floor and never trailed in the second-half. Reserve freshman Gary Browne scored 10 of his 12 points after halftime.  

Georgetown's press forced a few turnovers and bad possessions by WVU late in the second half and led to nine straight points for the Hoyas, who pulled to within 62-58 with 2:26 left. They would convert just one field goal the rest of the way, however, and WVU sank 10 straight free throws in the final two minutes to secure the victory.

Hollis Thompson led Georgetown (13-2, 3-1) with 20 points.
