Yesterday at Madison Square Garden in New York:

BY THE NUMBERS

0 Field goals made in 12 attempts to start the game for Georgetown. The Hoyas were trailing 11-0 with 13:32 left in the first half when sophomore Jon Wallace ended the drought on a 3-pointer from the left wing. After the ghastly start against the Notre Dame zone, Georgetown settled down, hitting 24 of its last 46 shots (52.2 percent).

7-1 Record in first-round Big East tournament games for Georgetown, a league best. The lone loss was 68-57 to Boston College in the opening round of the 2004 championship.

QUOTABLE

“People have hit some big shots on us and tough shots. … That shot that Bowman made was a tough shot. I mean, Torin [Francis] rode him kind of into the cheerleaders, and he hit a lefty runner. That’s just a talented play. We can’t do much better there.”
