Georgetown 73 American 46.

Box Score

Postgame audio - Coach John Thompson III, Chris Wright & Greg Monroe:

The faster, stronger and taller Georgetown men's basketball team did what faster, stronger and taller basketball teams are supposed to do when playing a depleted American squad that graduated five starters from last year's Patriot League NCAA tournament representatives.

Jumping passing lanes and swiping 10 steals, including a career-best five takeaways by sophomore guard Jason Clark.

Dominating the boards to a 43-32 count, with center Greg Monroe snatching a personal high of 13.

Shooting an even 50.0% from the floor (27-54) and holding the crosstown visitors to a 27.1% percentage (16-59) while blocking nine shots.

Shutting down American's leading scorer Stephen Lumpkins, who was a woeful 1-17 from the floor and missed his last 14 shots.

Back-to-back three pointers by Chris Wright and Austin Freeman eight minutes in gave Georgetown a lead they would not relinquish. Three straight steals by Clark, two of which resulted in breakaway dunks took the lead up to 10 and the Hoyas would extend that advantage to as many as 31 on two occasions in the second half.

It was the final tuneup for Georgetown (6-0) before the Hoyas go to Madison Square Garden and Anaheim's Honda Center this week to face two Top 25 foes - Butler and Washington.

"Georgetown was just too good," American head coach Jeff Jones plainly stated following his team's eighth loss of the season.
