It was a light weekend on the athletics front: while the men’s basketball team rebounded from a tough loss against archrival Syracuse to defeat St. John’s, the women’s team wasn’t so fortunate. They were destroyed 80-38 by perennial powerhouse UConn, and, as you can imagine, there weren’t too many Georgetown highlights from that game. So, staying away from that debacle, here are this weekend’s three stars:
Nate Lubick – Men’s Basketball
Lubick has taken a lot of criticism this season as he’s kept a starting spot despite minimal (and frequently inconsistent) production. The sophomore did much to silence his critics against St. John’s, though. Lubick stuffed the score sheet against the Johnnies, registering seven points, eight rebounds, five assists, four blocks and didn’t have a single turnover.
Emily Infeld – Track and Field
Infeld has been impressing all season, and this week was no different. At the BU Valentine Invitational on Friday, the senior from Ohio not only won her heat, but set a new Georgetown school record time in the women’s 3,000m run in the process. She clocked in at 9:00.13, an automatic NCAA qualifying time for the USA Junior Cross Country Championships in Missouri.
Greg Whittington – Men’s Basketball
It really is all about basketball, so for the final star, we return to the hardwood. Whittington came off the bench on Saturday to register 12 points, the most of his short career, including a clutch three pointer late in the Hoyas’ win over the Johnnies. Hopefully this result will give Whittington the confidence to become as consistent a contributor on the offensive end as classmate Otto Porter.
