QUOTABLE

“It makes the event we’re having tonight a lot easier to show up to. That was the main thing. I was thinking, ‘I’m not going to be able to go tonight if we lose.’ ”

— John Thompson III on the importance of winning on the day Georgetown held its centennial celebration at the Ritz-Carlton. Georgetown played its first game on Feb. 9, 1907, against Virginia.

BY THE NUMBERS

2 Shots made out of 17 attempts by Marquette’s Dominic James against the Hoyas. The electric sophomore point guard, who came into the game leading the Golden Eagles in scoring (15.6 points), routinely beat his primary defender off the dribble only to be swallowed in the lane by Georgetown’s cast of frontcourt giants. Of all his shots, only four could be categorized as uncontested looks. For the third straight game, the slumping James finished with just six points.

70.3 Percentage of field goals made on the season for Georgetown center Roy Hibbert, who officially leads all NCAA Division I players in that category. Hibbert entered the game needing six made field goals to qualify and finished 7-for-12 en route to a 23-point performance.
