Last night at Petersen Events Center in Pittsburgh

SEEN AND HEARD

Georgetown junior forward Jeff Green scored 15 points to become the 38th player to join the program’s 1,000-point club. The 6-foot-8 forward from Hyattsville now has 1,000 points on the number. Barring injury and assuming he returns to the Hilltop for his senior season, Green could wind up among the school’s elite scorers. Mark Tillmon holds the 10th spot with 1,598 points.

PLAY OF the GAME

A pair of Hoyas shared the honors from last night. Roy Hibbert executed a beautiful drop step and jam on Levon Kendall to put the Hoyas up 13-11 early in the first half. Later in the opening half, freshman forward DaJuan Summers came from the back side and swatted away a shot attempt from Pittsburgh’s Mike Cook. As he blocked the shot, Summers screamed, cursing in a taunting manner and earning a warning from referee Ed Corbett.

BY THE NUMBERS

64.3 First-half shooting percentage for Pittsburgh last night. The Panthers built a 41-32 halftime lead, making 18 of 28 field goal attempts before the break.
