Final Score, Georgetown 78 UCLA 70
The Georgetown Hoyas spoiled Shabazz Muhammad's debut with the No. 11 UCLA Bruins and dominated from start to finish in a 78-70 upset win in the semifinals of the Legends Classic at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
Muhammad finished the game with 15 points on 5-of-10 shooting and two assists for the Bruins, but the freshman looked rusty and did not have a major impact in the game.
On the other hand, Georgetown clearly came ready to play and frustrated the Bruins with their 2-3 zone defense all night.
The Hoyas shot 54-percent from the field and were led by Markel Starks' career-high 23 points. Otto Porter Jr. and Greg Whittington combined for 31 points, 16 rebounds and eight assists to help Georgetown roll to victory.
Georgetown will face the No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers tomorrow night in the championship game, while the Bruins will face the Georgia Bulldogs in the consolation game.
