Georgetown women’s basketball (10-20, 4-14 Big East) fell to DePaul University (24-6, 14-3 Big East) in Chicago 91-74 on Tuesday night.
After a slow start with a few missed shots and too many turnovers, the Hoyas began to pick up momentum, and the game became a fast-paced, back-and-forth thriller for most of the first half. Though the Blue and Gray never grabbed a lead, they often came close to the Blue Demons, bringing the score to as close as a basket halfway through the first half with a three-point swish by sophomore forward Logan Battle. Georgetown continued to keep pace with DePaul until there were about six and a half minutes left in the first half, when the Blue Demons went on a 10-2 run before the Hoyas could regain their footing. At that point, the damage was done, and the teams went to the lockers with a halftime score of 47-36.
