Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:
OVERKILL In a fashion befitting hoops-crazed Connecticut, the Huskies brought 18 players to Washington and dressed 16. Among the seldom-used reserves were the spectacularly named Kwasi Gyambibi, Shamon Tooles and Ace Watanasuparp, a 5-foot-6, 150-pound senior flea who has managed to miss four shots in just three minutes of action this season.
CLOSING IN Senior point guard Kevin Braswell entered the game with 650 career assists, 28 shy of a Georgetown record. Averaging 5.33 per game this season, Braswell stands third behind Michael Jackson (671) and Joey Brown (677).
SCOUTING CARON Eleven NBA scouts were on hand at MCI Center, representing Seattle, Phoenix, Vancouver, Denver, Sacramento, New York, Cleveland, New Jersey, the Los Angeles Clippers, Utah and Indiana. Georgetown's Mike Sweetney has already said he plans to return to the Hilltop, so most of the scouts were there to assess the skills of UConn forward Caron Butler (19.0 points, 7.0 rebounds). Though just a sophomore, the 22-year-old Butler has two children and is expected to trade his role as scholar-athlete for some NBA green.
BANG A Georgetown student drilled a shot from halfcourt at halftime to win a Pontiac Sunfire. If it had been a Mercedes, we would have included his name.
