WASHINGTON -- Mary Lisicky scored a game-high 21 points, including seven three-pointers, as Georgetown outlasted American, 78-56, in women's basketball here on Tuesday evening.
It was the final pre-holiday game for the Eagles, who do not play again until Dec. 29-30, at the Loyola Holiday Tournament.
American (5-4) was in control of the early portion of the game, holding a 12-8 advantage with 12:48 to play in the first half. Georgetown (6-2) answered quickly though, on the strength of a 20-4 run, to take a 28-16 lead with 3:41 remaining in the half.
Leading 31-20 at the half, the Hoyas came out of the lockerroom rolling, and used a 18-3 spurt to take a commanding 49-25 lead with 12:56 left in the game. Georgetown shot an incredible 70.4 percent (19-of-27) from the floor in the second half, including six-of-11 from three-point range.
Nok Duany and Rebekkah Brunson each scored 13 for the Hoyas, who now lead the all-time series with the cross-town Eagles, 17-5.
Following the holiday break, American will face Loyola in the opening round of the Loyola (Md.) Holiday Tournament. Gametime is set for 1:00 p.m. in the Greyhounds' Reitz Arena.
