We revealed the jerseys Oregon and Georgetown would be wearing last night and now we have a recap! Oregon beat Georgetown 82-75 Friday night in front of a Army filled crowd in South Korea. Oregon was led by Junior guard, Joseph Young who racked up 24 points, 5 rebounds and 1 assist. Junior center, Joshua Smith led the way for Georgetown finishing with 25 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists, and a block. Even though Georgetown was able to keep the game close, they shot a horrific 6.7% from the three point line on 1 of 15 shooting and that will not get the job done. Nonetheless it was a great game played by both teams and a great way to support our troops overseas.
The second annual Armed Forces Classic will be played tonight, featuring Oregon vs Georgetown, which will air at 8PM ET on ESPN. As today kicks off the start to the College Basketball Season it is only fitting that we honor our troops around the world. The game will be played at Army Base, Camp Humphreys in South Korea. The jerseys and shoes made by Nike and Jordan Brand respectably feature camo print, with american flags and the words U.S.A (Oregon) and RESPECT (Georgetown). Hopefully this will be a continued success for the next 3 years as ESPN has a 5 year partnership with the Department of Defense and each branch of the US Armed Forces.
