George Washington vs. DePaul halftime notes

The Blue Demons came out hot and have George Washington staring at an upset.

In the shocker of the night, DePaul has number 20 George Washington in a 12-point hole, as the Blue Demons lead 41-29. This has been an outlier game for both sides but here's what you need to know:

  • First, just look at this dunk by Myke Henry. That is all.
  • Doing their jobs: DePaul's top three 3-point shooters - Eli Cain, Aaron Simpson, Tommy Hamilton IV - have all knocked down two shots from behind the arc. Do-it-all guy Myke Henry has filled the scoresheet with 7 points, 4 rebound, an assist and a steal. Point guard Billy Garrett Jr. has struggled with turnovers this year - averaging three assists to two turnovers - has protected the ball and dished out four assists to one turnover tonight.
  • Pulling their weight: For No. 20 George Washington, it's been Tyler Cavanaugh and Kevin Larsen carrying the team through the first half, accounting for 24 of GW's 29 points. Larsen leads the game with 13 points and 5 boards while Tyler Cavanaugh has 11 points of his own.
  • The shooting star: George Washington isn't a great 3-point shooting team but their lone shooting star is yet to shine tonight. The team's second leading scorer, Patricio Garino (a 56 percent shooter from behind the arc) is 0-for-3 from the outside and 0-for-5 for the game.
