Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:
UVA HUNGRY When asked which game they were most eagerly anticipating this season, nearly all the Hoyas tabbed Thursday's matchup against Virginia.
"I'm looking forward to playing Virginia, because Roger Mason is a good friend of mine, and I hope I get to guard him some," said swingman Victor Samnick, who played a season of high school ball with Mason at Good Counsel before transferring to Newport Prep.
"Yeah, since Maryland isn't on the schedule, I'm most excited about Virginia," said Kevin Braswell, who scored a career-high 40 points against the Cavaliers in Georgetown's triple-overtime victory over Virginia in the NIT two years ago. "That was wild last time we faced them, and I'm hoping this game is half that exciting."
TIME CHANGE Georgetown's Jan. 2 Big East opener against Miami at MCI Center, which was originally slated to start at 7:30 p.m., has been rescheduled for 6 p.m.
SMELLED The strong odor of marijuana coming from the front-row seating directly in front of the Rover. Apparently, the tighter security at MCI Center doesn't extend to illegal substances.
BAND BLUES Believe it or not, the ballyhooed Bison band was out-performed by the GU pep bunch. The Howard band was extremely entertaining when they deigned to play but that was only three or four times all game.
