Washington, D.C–

It’s hard to even put 0-8 with the Hoyas team in the Big East, but the reality this is where they are and prior to the game tonight the game against Seton Hall, everyone said tonight is the night… Well folks, here we are, tonight was not the night and after mounting a strong come-back in the second half, the Hoyas still fell short to a hot shooting Seton Hall team, 70-63.

Donald Carey had 15 points for the Hoyas (6-13, 0-8), who now have lost nine straight games.

Aminu Mohammed added 14 points and eight rebounds and Kaiden Rice scored 12 for Georgetown.

“If you look at all our games, we are right there. We are right in them. But then the mistakes that we make, those rebounds definitely hurt. Jackson was able to hit two big 3’s – those hurt, the rebounds hurt, the fouling when we don’t need to foul – all that stuff hurt, said Hoyas Coach Patrick Ewing after the game.

Coming into the game today there had been some calls for Ewing to step aside, as the Hoyas program had never had to deal with a record like this in Big East play and some feared the direction of the team is just not going to work the way the original plan when he took over for JT III.

 Tray Jackson tied his career high with 21 points and Jared Rhoden scored 14 points and Seton Hall beat Georgetown 70-63 on Tuesday night.

The Hoyas don’t have much time to sit back and figure things out, as they welcome St. Johns on campus this Thursday and face Providence on Saturday back at Capital One Arena.
