Seen and heard yesterday at Joyce Convocation Centerin South Bend, Ind.:
A LITTLE SENSITIVE Hoyas coach Craig Esherick's post-game histrionics continue. If it's not a postgame tirade over officiating, it's something else. Now, Esherick won't even answer simple questions from the media.
He was asked why his team, coming out of a timeout, couldn't get off a shot with 15 seconds left in regulation of a tie game.
"You saw what happened, I'm not going to walk you through it," Esherick said. "No, I can't walk you through it. If someone else wants to ask the question, I may walk them through it, I'll answer their question. Does anybody else want to know what happened? Now, if the assumption of the first person who asked the question, was that I told them don't shoot, let's go to overtime, that would be idiotic for anyone to assume that."
TEE HIM UP Just 1:17 had ticked off the game clock, and the Hoyas' Wesley Wilson already had three fouls. The 6-foot-11 center's third personal came when he was slapped with a technical for slamming the ball. Wilson again was a non-factor, finishing with five points and two rebounds in six minutes.
NO PLACE LIKE DOME Things don't get any easier for the Hoyas tomorrow when they visit No.24 Syracuse. The Carrier Dome is a difficult place for visiting teams because of the bubble roof, bad lighting and strange sight lines. Instead of traveling to Syracuse a day early and getting used to the unusual surroundings, Georgetown will practice in Chicago today. As a result, the notoriously poor shooting Hoyas will have only a morning shootaround to get used to the Carrier Dome's tough conditions.
