Balanced Attack Powers Bearcats Past Hoyas in Overtime|
Feb. 7, 2009
Williams went 3-for-4 from the line, and Vaughn was 2-for-2 in an extra period in which neither team made a field goal. Georgetown went 0-for-8 from the field in overtime, with Austin Freeman missing a potential game-winning 3-pointer against tough defense from Rashad Bishop at the buzzer.
Vaughn finished with 16 points, nine rebounds, and seven assists for the Bearcats (16-8, 6-5 Big East), who had never beaten Georgetown until a 64-57 victory at home on Jan. 28. Cincinnati, which beat Notre Dame earlier in the week, has won six of eight.
Alvin Mitchell came off the bench and hit three 3-pointers in the second half, including one in the final minute that capped off a 5-0 run to send the game into overtime.
Greg Monroe had 13 points, six rebounds and five steals for Georgetown (13-9, 4-7), which has lost six of seven.
Cincinnati returns to the hardwood on Wednesday, Feb. 11, when St. John's comes to Fifth Third Arena. Tip-off is set for 7:30 p.m. on ESPN360.com
