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.

Georgetown toppled by Loyola Marymount to begin Jamaica Classic

MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica -- James Batemon scored 27 points and grabbed eight rebounds as Loyola Marymount used a strong second half to beat Georgetown, 65-52 in a battle of unbeaten teams in an opening round game of the Jamaica Classic at Montego Bay on Friday night.

The teams met for the first time since 1979, when they met at the Nike Cage Classic in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Georgetown took a 26-21 lead at intermission, but the Lions opened the second half on a run. Erik Johansson hit a 3-pointer and Batemon followed with a layup to tie the game at 26-26 and spark a 12-0 run. Mattias Markusson's dunk with 5:22 left pushed the lead to 15.

Loyola Marymount (4-0) shot 19 of 55 from the field (34.5 percent), including 5 of 20 from distance, but did much of its damage from the free-throw line, where it converted 22 of 25 attempts. Batemon, who has led the Lions in scoring in all four games, was a perfect 13-for-13 shooting from the line. Markusson added nine points and grabbed 13 rebounds.

Jessie Govan finished with 20 points to lead the Hoyas (3-1). Josh LeBlanc added 12 points.

Georgetown won its opener, and Mac McClung's dunking skills are as good as advertised

Well that didn't take long. 

In just his first game in a Georgetown uniform, highly-touted freshman guard Mac McClung threw down an amazing highlight-reel dunk that's already gone viral. 

The 6-0 Gate City, Va. native might not be the most highly touted recruit in Georgetown history, but next to Allen Iverson, he's the most buzzworthy. 

And if the Hoyas' season-opener against Maryland-Eastern Shore is any indication, McClung is worthy of the buzz.

Yep, just as good as advertised

The Hoyas defeated Maryland-Eastern Shore in their season opener 68-53 Tuesday, and while McClung only eight scored points, that slam has confirmed he and Georgetown might just be must-watch TV again.
