Georgetown's Marcus Derrickson listed day-to-day
Marcus Derrickson did not play in the Georgetown's 93-73 win over St. John's on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.
Following the game, Georgetown head coach John Thompson III listed his freshman forward as day-to-day with a knee injury.
Marcus Derrickson banged knees with another player during practice, told JT3 before tip-off he couldn't go. Status day-to-day. #Hoyas— Gene Wang (@gene_wang) January 14, 2016
The Hoyas entered the first meeting of the season with St. John's shorthanded. Paul White, the sophomore forward who had missed previous four games, did not make the trip to New York, as he underwent season-ending hip surgery earlier in the day.
The 6-foot-7 Derrickson has been one of the top freshmen in the Big East this season. He is averaging 7.4 points and 4.4 rebounds, shooting 44 percent from three, in 16 games (all starts) for the Hoyas. Junior forward Reggie Cameron, who scored 15 points against the Red Storm, made his first start of the season in place of Derrickson.
Georgetown hosts No. 6 Villanova on Saturday afternoon with first place in the Big East on the line.
