Someone who's not Marquette or Syracuse is in first place in the Big East, at least for now.

#15 Georgetown 62, Cincinnati 55 - The Hoyas turned a six point halftime lead into a 12 point lead after the first five minutes of the second half. You hear a lot of "THIS GAME WILL BE DECIDED IN THE FIRST FIVE MINUTES OF THE SECOND HALF" from coaches and commentators, and this was definitely not the case here. The Bearcats promptly went on a 20-7 run over the next eight minutes to take a 51-50 lead. Unfortunately, the JaQuon Parker jumper that gave them that lead was their last field goal until a Cashmere Wright layup with 22 seconds left amidst a flurry of Markel Starks free throws that put the game away for Georgetown. Casual Hoya celebrates their ascension to first place.

How about some highlights?
