Georgetown has been doing a great job on attacking the zone that Robert Morris is running.One thing that the Colonials are doing is preventing penetration from LJ Peak, but they are allowing Joshua Smith to post up and score as much as he want. The Colonials have no answer for for him in the post because they are lacking size in the interior. Joshua Smith is on track for a double-double at this point. Smith has 7 points and 6 rebounds. Peak leads all scores with 9 points and is shooting 3-from-5 from the field. A lot of his points are not coming from him driving in the middle, he has been driving from the side of the wing.

Georgetown is looking good on the boards because of the size that Robert Morris is lacking and everyone is rebounding also. Mikael Hopkins and Smith is owning the paint right now. As a team, Georgetown is leading in boards right now. With that being said, they will need to continue doing this because they are doing a good job and is looking to run away with this game. From Robert Morris standpoint, nobody on the team has more than five rebounds, which is kind of bad right now if they want a chance to win. Georgetown is winning the rebounding game 24-10. Hopkins had 6 rebounds and Smith has 6 also.

Robert Morris is having a bad shooting day as a team as of right now. The one good thing for the team is that they are a perfect from the free throw line, which is needed because they are not shooting well from behind the arc. The Colonials are shooting 7-for-28 from the field at halftime, which is holding them back. Marcquise Reed, who is one of the leading scorers for the Colonials, is not having a good game right now. In three games, Reed is averaging 13 points a game.
