Homesick: Georgetown Loses at Villanova, 80-66, in Mistake-Filled Performance

After some auspicious early-season road trips, Georgetown continued to struggle away from home in conference, losing 80-66 on Saturday at Villanova. Against the Wildcats, the Hoyas’ defense once again proved leaky, as Georgetown defenders time and again lost track of Villanova shooters, who connected on 15 three-pointers, many uncontested. Wildcat wing Saddiq Bey led the charge, pouring in a career-high 33 points on the strength of 8 triples, in the process becoming the latest D.C. product to migrate to Philly only to torture his hometown team.

For their part, the Hoyas couldn’t find a consistent source of perimeter offense, as their four guards shot just 11 of 31 for the day and the team as a whole canned just 5 triples on 16 attempts.
