Allen Iverson is one of the best players the NBA ever saw, and probably the best guard ever to wear a Georgetown Hoya uniform.
Georgetown (16-11, 7-8 Big East) snapped a two-game losing streak as Markel Starks had 22 points and four assists, guiding an efficient offense. The Hoyas shot 52 percent from the floor, had 14 assists and committed just three turnovers.
Looking for a spark with his team's NCAA Tournament hopes fading, Georgetown coach John Thompson inserted Jabril Trawick into the starting lineup for the first time in more than six weeks on Saturday.

After compiling a list of more than 100 CEO candidates, Microsoft settled on Satya Nadella a home-grown leader who joined the software maker in the early 1990s. That's back when Google's founders were teenagers and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was in elementary school.

Coach John Thompson's Hoyas (11-6, 3-3) didn't score a field goal over the final 9:44 and blew a double-digit, second-half lead for the second straight game.
Seton Hall has everyone back, including the senior who now holds the school record for steals.
Georgetown (4-2) hosts High Point Thursday night and hopes its overall wayward 3-point shooting shows as well.
"It was a huge impact. When he's on the court, we're a better team," Thompson said. "I like bringing him off the bench because we get an infusion off the bench. But we had too many slow starts."
"It's a once in a lifetime experience," Thompson said.
