Yesterday at Verizon Center
SEEN AND HEARD
Georgetown senior swingman Tyler Crawford was the luckiest man in Verizon Center yesterday after somehow escaping automatic ejection after leaving the bench during an altercation with 15:51 remaining.
With Georgetown leading by 10 at the under-16:00 media timeout, DaJuan Summers and several other Georgetown players wandered through the Cincinnati huddle to drop off a few barbs on their way to the Georgetown bench. Some shoving and posturing ensued, and Crawford came off the Georgetown bench and wound up about 50 feet away in the midst of the fray.
“Let’s Get Wattaded” read the student section’s top sign yesterday. The student got his wish, as the Georgetown rout enabled coach John Thompson III to play freshman reserve Omar Wattad for the game’s final two minutes.
BY THE NUMBERS
27-10Advantage for Georgetown in points off turnovers. The turnover-prone Hoyas have come out on the short end of that statistic in eight of 15 Big East games this season and had a season-best margin of plus-12 (vs. Notre Dame) in the category in league play through Friday’s games.
