#20 Hoyas win ugly game over Vols, 37-36

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Georgetown and Tennessee held each other scoreless over the final four minutes, and the No. 20 Hoyas beat the Volunteers 37-36 in a display of abysmal shooting Friday night in the SEC/Big East Challenge.

On a night when the "challenge" part of the event was the task of simply putting the ball in the basket, the teams combined to make just 7 of 20 shots -- from the free throw line. The field-goal shooting was just as horrid, with the Vols hitting 33 percent and the Hoyas 36 percent.

Appropriately enough, the final possession of the game consisted of an air ball by Tennessee's Skylar McBee. The rebound went out of bounds to the Vols, and Jordan McRae's 3-pointer at the buzzer clanged off the rim.
