The Hoyas did hold blistering hot James Southerland to 13 points on 4-of-10 shooting from three-point range, but Syracuse's defense held Georgetown to just 4-of-18 shooting from the three-point line. Syracuse's matchup zone defense can help any tired team that is going through a four-games-in-four night stretch.
