American Cagers Top Hoyas , 65-60 by Bill Dailey American University s high flying Eagles snatched a victory from the arms of Georgetown s cagers in the closing minutes of last Wednesday evening s fracas , dealing the Hoyas their second consecutive loss of the young season . Georgetown decisively out-rebounded their local rivals 65-31 but nevertheless wound up on the short end of a 65-60 score , failing to capitalize on several of their opportunities .

Peter s found the Hoya defense just too much to cope with in the opening 20 minutes . Bill Smith , high scoring junior forward who netted 524 points last year , couldnt find the range in the first half . The Georgetown defense wouldnt allow him to get set up for his favorite jump shot near the foul circle , and consequently were able to hold Smith to four points before intermission . After the mid-day break , the Georgetown offense sagged a bit , but Tagliabue tossed in three straight buckets and five in just five minutes to end practically all hopes for a St . Peter s victory . Sheehan hit on 13 of 14 charity tosses and was 8 for 14 from the field for his best performance of the year . Tom Coleman had his hottest night so far with 22 . Although Smith was held to just one field goal in 16 eff...
