HOYAS REPORT

Saturday at Verizon Center

SEEN AND HEARD

Georgetown sophomore forward Julian Vaughn didn’t practice all week or play in yesterday’s game because of a minor sprain just above his left Achilles. The 6-foot-9 reserve is expected to be available for the Old Spice Classic (Nov. 27-30). …

For those who might have noticed the disparity between the way Nikita Mescheriakov’s name is spelled in box scores and official releases compared with his jersey (Meshcharakou), the forward explained that the former is the anglicized Russian spelling while the latter is the official Belarusian spelling.

QUOTABLE

“Everybody is so surprised that he’s out there, but I’m not surprised. Nobody works harder. He’s willing to sacrifice his body and whatever else to help this team have success.”

- Jessie Sapp on Omar Wattad (3.0 points, 2.0 rebounds), who has logged 27 minutes off the bench in the Hoyas’ first two games.

BY THE NUMBERS

40-6 Edge in points in the paint for Georgetown, thanks to Greg Monroe (20 points) and a slew of easy transition baskets.

- Barker Davis
