Seen and heard last night at MCI Center:

HIGHLIGHT HARV Every once in awhile, Georgetown freshman Harvey Thomas shows glimpses of the athletic ability that made him one of the top recruits in the nation. With 11:25 left in the first half, Georgetown point man Kevin Braswell flipped an alley-oop pass to Thomas that was far too high. But maintaining his body control while soaring along the baseline, the 6-foot-8 Thomas reached back over his head a la Grant Hill, retrieved the pass and slammed it home to bring the crowd to its feet.
SWEET Georgetown sophomore power forward Mike Sweetney entered the game ranked No.2 in the nation in field-goal percentage (65.8). Sweetney also leads the Big East in rebounding.
BIG LEAST Speaking of the once-formidable conference, the Big East is 3-11 against Top 25 foes from other leagues this season, the worst record in the conference's history.
SHUT DOWN One game after holding the Big East's leading scorer Troy Bell to a season-low eight points, the Georgetown backcourt did another glittering job on Seton Hall's perimeter tandem of Andre Barrett and Darius Lane in the first half. With Braswell, Tony Bethel, Drew Hall and Gerald Riley applying constant pressure, Seton Hall's top two scorers (31.3 points) exited the half with two points on 1-for-7 shooting as the Hoyas built a 36-27 halftime lead.
