Washington, D.C–

After a disappointing loss to Dartmouth, the Hoyas needed to find a way to rebound with some offense that was actually watchable… that offense came in the second half of a 79-57 victory over American at Capital One Arena.

Aminu Mohammed had 14 points and nine rebounds as the Hoyas rolled past American on Tuesday night.

Dante Harris had 13 points for Georgetown (1-1). Donald Carey added 12 points and six assists. Timothy Ighoefe had 11 rebounds.

Stacy Beckton Jr. had 16 points for the Eagles (2-1).

If you based the remainder of the upcoming season on the first half, there is a pretty good chance that the Hoyas will not repeat as Big East Champs. In fact, it would be hard to believe they even win 5 games in conference play. While the final score says double digit victory, the overall game says needs work.

Unlike in the Dartmouth game, the Eagles could not find a way to connect from long range. Just 21 percent from on 4 of 19 shooting will not help you win many games. American has struggled in previous seasons from long range as well.

Georgetown will be back at it on Friday night in a match-up against Sienna.
