The West Virginia Mountaineers are hosting the No. 9-ranked Georgetown Hoyas, who are coming off a big come-from-behind victory. At halftime, the 'Eers hold a 29-27 lead over the Hoyas thanks to a late jumper by Darryl Bryant. The Hoyas took an early lead on the Mountaineers, but WVU battled back and took their own lead, but Georgetown was able to keep the game close heading into the half.
Bryant has just six points at halftime, but forward Kevin Jones is carrying the way for the 'Eers. Jones has 14 points in the first half with seven rebounds. Georgetown forward Hollis Thompson is having a nice half as well, with 13 points and two rebounds. Both teams are getting great play from their forwards, but someone else will need to step up for one team to separate.
