Seen and heard yesterday at MCI Center:
NAME GAME At one point during the second half, Norfolk State had a trio of players on the floor with the following given names Chakowby, Joemi and Hirami. Weren't those the three wise men?
PLEASE STAY As is their custom during the holidays once the students have left school, Georgetown invites a guest band to play during home games. Yesterday's tones were provided by the band from Oxon Hill High School. As is also the custom, the guest band was far more entertaining than the GU pep band.
QUOTABLE Nobody beats Norfolk State coach Wil Jones, a D.C. native who might be short on letters but is never short on words. Jones, who at one point during the first half asked an official how much he had been paid, had a number of amusing insights after the game. The award-winner was his descriptive awe of Georgetown's 73 percent effort (27 of 37) from the free throw line.
"That's incredible," said Jones, exploding into a Dennis Miller-style rant. "I've watched Georgetown all my life, and they ain't never made a free throw. Never. And today, they shoot 100 percent against me. I guess I just always bring out the best in people. No, seriously, they never could shoot a lick, and we were counting on that. But today, they up and made them all. Heck, they're probably still going in out there."
