Brown vs. Georgetown recap: Hoyas take care of business against Bears

Georgetown has now won their last four games.

On a night during which D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera became the 15th player in Georgetown history to cross the 1,500-point threshold in the Hoyas' 74-57 victory, the story of the game for the Hoyas was Bradley Hayes.

Hayes had 12 points and 11 rebounds in his second double-double of the season, as the senior center continues to take the conference by surprise.

Hayes was also a huge part of a stout defensive effort by the Hoyas, which limited the Bears to a balmy 28.1% field goal percentage.

If not for a 22-27 night from the free throw line for Brown, Georgetown likely would have won this game by 35 points. The Hoyas went into the locker room at the half with a commanding 42-15 lead.

As a result of building up the big lead, the Hoyas were able to empty their bench and get a total of 12 players into the game tonight.

Getting back to Smith-Rivera, he finished the game with 12 points, putting him at 1,503 for his career. He became the first Hoya to cross the 1,500 point mark since Austin Freeman did such in 2011. Smith-Rivera is 36 points from passing Allen Iverson for 14th all time on the Georgetown scoring list.

LJ Peak led the Hoyas with 13 points, but spent much of the second half in foul trouble after picking up three in the span of 75 seconds.

Guard Steven Speith led the Bears with 13 points, as well.

Up next for the Hoyas (5-3), they'll face UNC-Wilmington at the Verizon Center. UNC-Wilmington is one of 12 undefeated teams remaining, as they'll come into the game at 5-0.
