Last night at Verizon Center:

BY THE NUMBERS

5 shots made in 33 attempts (15.2 percent) for Towson, minus the outstanding performance of senior guard Gary Neal, who finished with 26 points on 7-for-13 shooting.

57.9 Shooting percentage for Georgetown over its last four games. The Hoyas entered the game ranked 10th in the nation in field goal percentage and should move up in those rankings after another torrid outing against the Tigers (27-for-46, 58.7 percent).

ASHANTI SIGHTING

Former Georgetown guard Ashanti Cook, a backcourt staple for the Hoyas before his graduation last year, was in attendance. The 6-foot-3 guard from Inglewood, Calif., now plays professionally in Germany and stopped by the District to see his Hoyas en route to the West Coast for the holidays.

RIVERS RUNS

Freshman guard Jeremiah Rivers returned to action for the first time since severely spraining an ankle Dec. 2 at Duke. In four inauspicious first-half minutes, Rivers had one 3-pointer blocked, chucked up an airball on another 3-point attempt and was toasted on the defensive end by Towson’s Neal.
