Irish Stymied in D.C.

Posted Feb 27, 2012

Notre Dame submitted its worst showing of the Big East conference slate in an 18-point defeat at Georgetown.

WASHINGTON – Playing at home for the last time, Jason Clark and Henry Sims combined for 25 points, 12 rebounds and six assists on "Senior Night," helping Georgetown (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) beat Notre Dame (No. 19 ESPN/USA Today, No. 20 AP) 59-41 on Monday night in a key game for Big East tournament seeding.

Clark finished with 13 points and six rebounds, while Sims had 12 points and five assists. While they have led the way all season for Georgetown (22-6, 12-5) on a roster with 10 freshmen and sophomores, there was plenty of help from the youngsters, as usual.

Greg Whittington contributed 15 points on 5-for-6 shooting, including 3 of 3 on 3-pointers, and another freshman, Otto Porter, had 10 rebounds.

Notre Dame (20-10, 12-5) lost its second straight following a school-record, nine-game Big East winning streak. It made 3 of 17 3-point attempts, after going 4 for 31 in a loss at St. John's on Saturday.
