In the searing pain of their final moments together, right down to the miserable trudge out of the locker room every basketball team without a net-cutting ceremony to cap its season inevitably takes, it wasn't hard for Georgetown to look back.
There was sorrow in the Georgetown locker room Sunday afternoon, unadulterated anguish as the Hoyas were left to come to terms with how their latest season had come to a close.
Lorenzo Brown hit three free throws in the final 10.6 seconds and North Carolina State conjured up its glorious tradition with a 66-63 upset of third-seeded Georgetown in a Midwest Regional on Sunday.
"The agency is aggressively recruiting applicants not only for these units but for correctional facilities across the state," TDCJ spokesman Jason Clark told the Globe-News.
