MOVE OVER, DAVID FALK: Georgetown coach Craig Esherick has a law degree and that alone qualifies him to be a sports agent. Of Georgetown's 16 missed 3-pointers yesterday, Esherick said only two were ill-advised shots. Mike Sweetney, Georgetown's 6-foot-8 preseason first-team All-American and a sure NBA lottery pick, was guilty of firing up one of them when he hoisted a 3-pointer midway through the first half.
Here's Esherick's take on Sweetney's 3-pointer: "Mike can hit 3s, but if he starts shooting 3s, we're not going to have anybody inside and his paycheck is going to start dropping in a couple years if he starts taking 3-point shots [in the NBA]."
Sweetney's attempt was just the third 3-pointer he has tried all misses in his Georgetown career.

COMEDY ON THE CLOCK: Towson turned the ball over 32 times, and it didn't take the Tigers long to get in the groove. Just 13 seconds had expired when shooting guard Brian Allen was stripped of the ball by the Hoyas' Gerald Riley on the right side.

EVERYBODY LOVES JOHNNY: There is a fund-raising movement under way to change the name of Towson's football facility to John Unitas Stadium in memory of the late Baltimore Colts legend. Sandra Unitas, Unitas' widow, is leading the effort. Unitas starred at Louisville, where there is a statue outside Cardinal Stadium in his honor as there is outside Baltimore Ravens Stadium.
