Georgetown snaps 4-game road losing streak, tops Butler

INDIANAPOLIS -- Marcus Derrickson tied a career-high with 27 points, on 11-of-13 shooting, for his eighth 20-plus point game this season and Georgetown beat Butler 87-83 on Tuesday night.

After Georgetown missed two free throws, Kamar Baldwin made a scoop shot in the lane and Sean McDermott stole the inbounds pass, leading to another Baldwin basket to pull Butler to 84-81 with 1:29 to go.

Butler had a chance to tie it in the closing seconds, but Baldwin's long 3-pointer was short and Jahvon Blair sealed it at the line at 4.5.

Jessie Govan had his 12th double-double of the season with 17 points and 12 rebounds for Georgetown (15-10, 5-9 Big East). Trey Dickerson, a senior averaging 3.5 points per game, set a career-high in the first half with 12 points and finished with 18.

Kelan Martin had 22 points and eight rebounds to reach 20 points for the 17th time this season for Butler (17-10, 7-7). Tyler Wideman added 19 points and Baldwin had 16 points, six rebounds and seven assists.

Derrickson's late 3 gives Hoyas win over Seton Hall

Marcus Derrickson scored 22 points, grabbed a career-best 18 rebounds and hit the game-winning 3-pointer on Saturday as Georgetown beat Seton Hall 83-80.

Derrickson got an open look on a deep 3 near the end of the shot clock and buried it with 4.2 seconds left:

 He was also fouled on the close out by Khadeen Carrington but missed the foul shot. Myles Powell, who finished with 25 points for the Pirates, missed a 3-point attempt as time ran out.

Jamorko Pickett added 18 points and Jessie Govan scored 11 for the Hoyas (14-10, 4-9 Big East), who had a 17-point lead from early in the second half erased by the six-minute mark.

Angel Delgado's layup with 5:36 to play capped a 10-0 run and gave Seton Hall (17-8, 6-6) its first lead of the game at 69-67.

Desi Rodriguez added 24 points and Delgado scored 12 for the Pirates.

Meet Georgetown commit, Max McClung, the most exciting dunker in 2018

Georgetown may have found a hidden gem in their newest recruit, Max McClung.

A 6-2 guard from Gate City, VA, he has been setting the internet on fire with his freakish dunk package.  

What seemed to be the looks of a typical fastbreak turned into an insane highlight that you just can't help but watch over and over.

After a forced turnover by Gate City High School, the outlet to McClung resulted in a ridiculous between-the-legs dunk that left the home crowd and millions on social media in utter disbelief.

Not to mention, he went on to end the game with 43 points, leading his team in a blowout victory.

You are RIDICULOUS! @macmcclung37 #marsreel

With all the hype being generated around the high-flying dunker, will his arrival at Georgetown in the fall prove to be something to keep an eye out for, or will he get lost in the wind?

McClung is definitely no stranger to skepticism over his game, he has clearly used it as his fuel. In his senior season alone, he is averaging 37.6 points a game and currently chasing the Virginia High School League single-season scoring title, held by future NBA Hall of Famer, Allen Iverson. 

There is absolutely no doubt concerning the legitimacy of McClung's bounce, but will his overall game translate at the next level? Only time will truly tell, but with the smooth jump shot and solid ball-handling skills that McClung also possesses, there may be a bright future for the incoming Hoya.
