Washington, D.C–

As the season starts to wind down and the transfer portal is right around the corner, you start to learn a lot about your team… tonight Hoyas Coach Ed Cooley learned a lot against St. Johns that mental mistakes late cost games in the Big East.

Perhaps the Rick Petino coached team with its own struggles should have lost tonight, but they found the energy in the final two minutes of this battle to dig out a 90-85 victory over the Hoyas.

The Red Storm (15-12, 7-9) led for 39:38 and by as many as 21 in the first half was, the real demise for the Hoyas tonight. You simply just cannot win many games in the Big East losing by 15 to 20 plus points at multiple part of this game.

One of the big notes from after this game is that the Hoyas have gone 3-51 in Big East regular season games since the 21-22 season. Simply put, they need to beat other teams than DePaul before they can look at what this team really has or who they should have enrolling for the fall semester that can actually help this team going forward.

Jayden Epps led the way for the Hoyas with 31 points. Georgetown also got 15 points and seven assists from Rowan Brumbaugh. Supreme Cook also had 12 points and eight rebounds. The loss was the Hoyas’ 11th in a row.

The Hoyas had a shot at keeping this game close when it was 39-32 at the break, but they got hit with another second half dose of RJ Luis who finished with 19 points while going 9 of 15 from the field.

Of note in this game the Hoyas continued to see the absence of Jay Heath when it comes to scoring. Heath was held scoreless in 14 minutes along with Ish Massoud scoring 3 points off the bench in 21 minutes.
