Providence Loses to Georgetown at the BuzzerStats
WASHINGTON (AP) - Shernard Long missed five of the fi58-rst six shots he took Saturday but his baseline jumper at the horn gave Georgetown University a 58-56 victory over Providence College.
Providence (5-5 overall, 0-2 Big East) had a chance to go ahead with 17.6 seconds left, but Llewellyn Cole missed two free throws. After a timeout, Georgetown (8-3, 2-2) worked the ball around to Long who drove the left baseline and took a shot that swirled around the rim three times before dropping through as time expired.
Trez Kilpatrick scored 15 points for Georgetown and Jahidi White had 14 points and 10 rebounds. Jamel Thomas scored 22 for the Friars and helped Providence erase Georgetown's 13-point first-half lead.
The Hoyas won the game despite going more than eight minutes without a field goal in the second half. The Friars went on a 14-1 run during that stretch to take a 46-41 lead with 8:53 left. Thomas hit back-to-back baskets and then made two free throws to give Providence a 54-51 lead with 3:10 left. Daymond Jackson made two driving baskets and then added a free throw to give the Hoyas a 56-54 lead with 49.2 seconds left. Thomas hit two free throws with 27.7 seconds left to tie the game and then forced a turnover - tipping a ball away to Cole, who was fouled. The Friars were 15-for-21 from the line, but Cole missed both shots.
