Seen and heard last night at McDonough Arena:

BETHEL OUT Freshman guard Tony Bethel has mono and will miss the next four to six weeks, according to coach Craig Esherick. The 6-2 shooting guard from Montrose Christian Academy played in the Hoyas' first two games, averaging 9.5 points and four assists. Nobody else on the team is showing symptoms of the contagious illness. And if all goes well, Bethel should be able to return for Georgetown's Big East opener, Jan. 2 vs. Miami at MCI Center.
PENTAGON PATCH In memory of the Sept. 11 tragedy, the Hoyas not only have Old Glory on their uniforms this season, they also have a patch bearing the likeness of the Pentagon on their warm-up tops.
ALL WET Some poor fool in a position of authority at Coastal Carolina decided it would be novel to have the Chanticleers emerging from the ocean in a beach-landing motif on the back of the team's media guide. The shot is pure comedy, making Coastal Carolina's yearbook an instant addition to the media guide hall of shame.
SHORTHANDED CHANTS Coastal Carolina was forced to play without senior forward Torrey Butler, who missed his second consecutive game with a mid-foot sprain. Butler, last season's Big South Player of the Year, averaged 19.4 points last season.
