Seen and heard yesterday at MCI Center:
TAPE YOUR ANKLES The bright spots were few and far between for West Virginia, but guard Jonathan Hargett, despite continuing to recover from recent arthroscopic knee surgery, did his best. Just before halftime, he broke down Georgetown's Drew Hall with a crossover dribble that got Hall's legs tangled up. Hall ended up tumbling face-first while Hargett canned a short jumper.
ZEBRA DOWN The game was stopped 2:03 before halftime while referee Michael Kitts knelt on the ground after being hit. Apparently as he was running upcourt along the sideline next to the West Virginia bench, Kitts caught an elbow in the chest from a coach or player and was injured. The teams played the rest of the first half with two referees, but Kitts returned for the second half.
NEW COACH Longtime Mountaineers coach Gale Catlett was not on the sideline for the second straight game because of an undisclosed medical condition. His nephew, Drew Catlett, coached the team and will continue as interim coach until his uncle, who is in his 24th season at West Virginia, returns.
