“I really don’t know [what happened],” said freshman Otto Porter, who contributed 14 points and 13 rebounds off the bench. “There was just a lot of miscommunication.”
Added Thompson: “Yes, it’s disappointing.”
A chance for Georgetown to tie the game fizzled, too. Junior Hollis Thompson, who had 10 points and 10 rebounds, watched from in front of the scorer’s table because he wasn’t able to check in. Then senior Jason Clark tangled with pesky Syracuse guard Scoop Jardine and turned the ball over with five seconds remaining.
The idea was to get a pick for Clark at the top of the key and allow the guard to drive and dish to someone in the corner.
That didn’t happen. The noise continued.
In the quiet room, Clark spoke in a quiet voice.
“That’s heartbreaking,” Clark said of the final mistake-ridden seconds. “We’ve just got to move on.”
