Washington, DC (Sports Network) – Brandon Bowman had 16 points to lead the
15th-ranked Georgetown Hoyas to a 64-41 victory over the St John’s Red Storm
at the MCI Center.

Roy Hibbert had 14 points and five rebounds and Jeff Green added nine points
in the victory for the Hoyas (17-4, 8-2 Big East), who have won their last

points during the spurt.

The Red Storm got to within eight points after Hamilton drained a three-

the first half.

However, Georgetown scored the next eight points and eventually took a 30-19

managed one basket in the first eight minutes, which allowed Georgetown to
build its lead to 48-21 after Jeff Green drained two free throws with 12:28 to
