The drug used by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to put death-row inmates to death is in short supply, and few alternatives are available, an agency spokesman said Thursday.
Georgetown lost out on big-time recruit Nerlens Noel. Its leading scorer, Jason Clark, graduated. Another gifted contributor, Hollis Thompson, departed a year early to pursue professional basketball. And somehow Georgetown improved.
One of the beliefs about basketball, or any sport, is that a team needs one player to whom everyone can turn when things get tough, or the one guy who won't hesitate to speak his mind, either in motivation or anger, to fire up his teammates.
Georgetown Hoyas 2012-13 preview.
The tale surrounding Otto Porter's arrival at Georgetown seems to have grown more florid with each passing day, to the point where one might believe the Hoyas magically unearthed a rebounding machine from the middle of nowhere and inserted him into the starting lineup of a Big East contender without anyone in the college basketball world knowing what hit them.
Markel Starks' summer was stuffed with responsibility last year. More playing time awaited the Georgetown guard, and a team trip to China loomed.
Teams of former college players from the D.C. and Philadelphia areas will face off next month in a pair of exhibitions designed to promote The-BALL (Basketball Alumni Legends League), a new pro league for those who don't make the NBA cut.
The surroundings were familiar, but the uniform was different for Hollis Thompson and Jason Clark. The former Georgetown stars found themselves back at Verizon Center last week to work out for the Washington Wizards, the latest step in their attempts to forge a professional career heading into next Thursday's NBA Draft.
Such is life for players such as Clark and Jardine, criss-crossing the country for team workouts in the final weeks before the NBA draft. The Wizards were the third and seventh stop, respectively, for Clark and Jardine, who were joined by Matt Gatens (Iowa), Bernard James (Florida State) and Darius Miller (Kentucky).
As many as 300 inmates, some of them armed with makeshift weapons such as broomsticks, rioted at a privately run prison for illegal immigrants, beating a guard to death and injuring 19 people, a sheriff said Monday.
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.
Jason Clark and Henry Sims shook hands Friday afternoon, another piece of business in Georgetown's season complete.
Georgetown coach John Thompson III isn't shying away from it, but he doesn't fully embrace it. It's impossible to ignore, however, hanging over what has been a stellar season by nearly all measures.
"We will be unable to use our current supply of pentobarbital after it expires," said the spokesman, Jason Clark, in NBC. "We are exploring all options at this time."
"This is a blessing," Clark said. "Even if I don't get drafted, don't make a team, not everyone gets to do this. Teams fly you in, put you in nice hotels. You get to see their facilities, meet head coaches, GMs, scouts. I'm just living in the moment."
