Seen and heard last night at Louis Brown Athletic Center in Piscataway, N.J.:
HEADBAND CENTRAL Every player on the Rutgers roster sported a headband. It's time for the NCAA to institute a new rule that if you don't have skills, you can't don such frills.
RED HOT What do James Gandolfini ("The Sopranos"), Calista Flockhart ("Ally McBeal") and Kristin Davis ("Sex and the City") have in common? Not only do they star on three of TV's 10 hottest shows, each also boasts an undergraduate degree from Rutgers.
HELPLESS Georgetown looked absolutely miserable over the final minutes of the first half without senior point man Kevin Braswell handling Rutgers' press. Braswell exited the game after picking up his second foul with 2:15 remaining in the half and Georgetown leading 41-25. Over the next two minutes, the Hoyas committed five turnovers with the freshman tandem of Tony Bethel and Drew Hall running the team, allowing Rutgers to clip a deficit that was once 18 points to 45-37 by halftime.
SLUMPING WES Junior center Wesley Wilson suffered through his fourth consecutive bad start, picking up two fouls in the first seven minutes while trying to guard Scarlet Knights 6-foot-6 power forward/center Rashod Kent. Wilson, who averaged 16.2 points and 7.6 rebounds in the Hoyas' first 10 games but managed just 4.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in the three losses leading up to the Rutgers game, had just two points and one rebound in the first half.
