Georgetown made sure the tale of two halves cliche would not be applied to it Monday night, as it fended off numerous comeback attempts in the second half by Villanova.
The Hoyas pounded their bitter Big East rival in the first half, as they entered the locker room with a 42-20 advantage.
Georgetown started the offensive fireworks early at the Verizon Center, as it went on a 7-0 run within the first few minutes. After a brief response from the visitors, the Hoyas went on a 17-0 run to open up their massive lead.
