Ouch! That's a Little Rough, Gary.

Every week CBS Sportsline's Gary Parrish has his "Monday Look Back." One of the standard sections of that column is Gary's "Player Who Should Lose His Scholarship." This is this week's entry:

Player(s) who should lose (their) scholarship(s): I'm adjusting this category this week to include Georgetown's starting guards, namely Chris Wright, Austin Freeman and Jessie Sapp. After going 12-of-26 from the field and combining to finish with 34 points in that win at Connecticut, they stunk it up Saturday in a 70-54 home loss to Pittsburgh. Wright, Freeman and Sapp combined to go 4-of-22 from the field (including 2-of-12 from 3-point range), and when that happens against a quality opponent the Hoyas are typically going to lose, even when DaJuan Summers and Greg Monroe combine for 37 points.


The guards definitely let Georgetown down on Saturday. But Chris Right has been fantastic the rest of this (early) season, Freeman is always solid, and Sapp was one of the few players providing some passion as the game against Pitt started to get out of control (anyone who saw his reaction after the block/tie up he managed down low knows what I'm talking about). They had a horrible game. But it is just one game! Let's see what happens against the Irish tonight!
