Last night at MCI Center:

43 Percent shooting from beyond the 3-point arc entering last night’s game for Georgetown, second best in the Big East behind Connecticut.

PLAYER OF THE GAME

When Penn State turned what seemed like a rout into a contest, Georgetown freshman forward Jeff Green stopped the Nittany Lions’ run in the second half. The 6-foot-9 Green became Georgetown’s go-to guy down the stretch. Green was unstoppable inside, scoring 13 of his 18 points in the second half. Georgetown’s prized freshman recorded the first double-double of his career with 18 points, 10 rebounds, six blocks and three assists.

SEEN AND HEARD

Tipoff for Georgetown’s Dec. 28 game against Norfolk State has been changed from 1 to 7:30 p.m. The game still will take place at MCI Center. … Former Hoyas great Mike Sweetney will make his first appearance of the season at MCI Center on Friday when the New York Knicks take on the Washington Wizards. To mark the occasion, the Wizards are offering special discounted tickets ($25 lower level, $10 upper level) to members of the Georgetown University community.
