The Hoyas finished the season with a 20-9 overall record, 12-6 against the Big East conference, and will take a No. 2 seed into the Big East Tournament.
Georgetown dominated Seton Hall for most of the game; the Hoyas led by nearly 20 points at one point in the second half. But Pirates junior guard Sterling Gibbs got hot and helped lead Seton Hall on a scoring run, cutting the Hoyas lead to just five points with less than a minute remaining. However, clutch free-throw shooting in the final seconds helped Georgetown hold on to the victory.
Trawick was 6-for-10 from the field and made 5-of-6 free-throw attempts. Freshman guard Tre Campbell scored 14 points on 4-of-5 shooting for the Hoyas. Senior center Josh Smith had nine points off the bench, and made 7-of-13 free throws.
Gibbs scored a game-high 22 points for the Pirates in the loss. Senior forward Brandon Mobley added 15 points for Seton Hall (16-14 overall, 6-12 Big East).
In the Big East tournament, the Hoyas will face the winner of the first-round matchup between No. 7 DePaul and No. 10 Creighton. The quarterfinal game on March 12 will be televised by Fox Sports 1; tip-off is at 7 p.m. Eastern.
