One step forward.
One step back. Disregard, make that two steps forward over this weekend. Your maddening, beloved, mercurial, tenacious Georgetown Hoyas grinded their way to 3-2 record on the season today, snatching this game from the American University Eagles in overtime by an 88-83 margin.
Jayden Epps had his head on straight in the second half, demonstrating incredibly hot shooting and steady hands, with a team-leading 31 points (and 4 assists) that doesn’t fully capture the extent to which the late-game comeback was his orchestration. Dontrez Styles turned in his second strong performance in as many days, dropping 22 points while grabbing 11 rebounds and going 5-6 from the line.
