The Georgetown Hoyas suffered, by most measurements, their worst loss in the Patrick Ewing era on Wednesday, surrendering a 10-point halftime lead to lose to the American Eagles, 74-70. The Hoyas were without Brandon Murray, who was out with an injury, and American was missing their leading scorer, Collin Smalls. There are no excuses for such an embarrassing defeat.

Before the full recap, here’s a quick Georgetown-American history lesson. The Hoyas had won the previous eleven matchups between the two teams, ten of those wins coming by 17 points or more. The Hoyas last loss against American came on December 15, 1982.
