Last night at Stan Sheriff Center in Honolulu:

9 Free throws taken (and made) by Georgetown guard Ashanti Cook this season.

PLAY OF THE GAME

With Georgetown leading 34-28 at the 16:20 mark in the second half, Hoyas guard Ray Reed stole the ball from Clemson forward James Mays near midcourt. Reed fired a one-hand bounce pass through the retreating defense to Brandon Bowman, who delivered a slam.

SEEN AND HEARD

PG CONNECTION: Georgetown forward Jeff Green (Northwestern) and Clemson center Sharrod Ford (Gwynn Park) both played at Prince George’s County high schools. Ford finished with a team-high 21 points and eight rebounds, while Green recorded his third double-double of the season with 15 points and 10 rebounds.

FIRST MATCHUP: It was the first-ever meeting between Georgetown and Clemson. Clemson now has faced every Big East school except Notre Dame.

LONG DEFENSE: In the tournament’s seventh-place game, Long Beach State defeated Indiana State 38-37 in the lowest-scoring game in the Rainbow Classic’s 41-year history.
